Gigantic developer signs with Perfect World, MOBA no longer Windows 10-exclusive

Motiga's troubled MOBA finds a new home, new platforms

Perfect World Entertainment, the publisher of Star Trek Online and Neverwinter, will publish Motiga's Gigantic, the third-person action MOBA that's bound for Xbox One and Windows PC, the two companies announced this week. The deal will expand the reach of Gigantic, Perfect World said, as the game will no longer be Windows 10-exclusive on PC.

Gigantic was announced in 2014 as a free-to-play online action game in which two teams of five players — supported by a massive Guardian character — do battle with armed with guns, swords and spells. In 2015, the game was announced as exclusive to Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Developer Motiga held a multiplayer beta for the game last year. Feedback from that beta led the developer to delay Gigantic to 2016, and that delay resulted in Motiga cutting staff.

Perfect World and Motiga plan to make Gigantic available for the 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8, in addition to the game's previously announced platforms.

"This partnership is a huge step for Motiga, as it allows us to continue working towards realizing the vision the development team had for Gigantic — a great competitive online game," said Motiga co-founder Chris Chung. "Even more so, it accelerates opportunities for Gigantic by having more resources available to us..."
