Lionsgate Entertainment, the media corporation known for the successful The Hunger Games, Saw and Twilight films has announced that it is expanding into videogames. The official announcement named Nerdist Industries co-founder and former CEO Peter Levin as the President of the company's new "Interactive Ventures and Games" division:
"Peter is a perfect fit for our entrepreneurial culture, and he is ideally qualified to lead the continued growth of our content business into the video game space and other interactive digital ventures," said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer. "Gaming has become one of the most explosive growth areas of the content business, and Peter's mandate will be to build a portfolio of premium digital properties as we expand our leadership in films and television programming into digital content as well."
The press release doesn't explicitly describe Lionsgate's games industry strategy, only that it will involve "incubation of new properties, investment in existing games and digital media vehicles and leveraging Lionsgate's franchises and other branded properties into the gaming space". However, it does specifically note that "consumer spending on mobile and social games increased by 130% last year", suggesting that the company's gaming plans could perhaps just be aiming at the casual games market.
