Changes in Organisation Proved to Be Effective

At the beginning of the year, certain managerial changes took place, but only to ensure that set foundation would match Yggdrasil’s ambitious plans. These changes occurred on both ordering and supplier side of the company’s operations and it seems they were the right moves, made at the right time.

One of the major events in the first quarter was the launch of the new Yggdrasil Dragons platform, which was announced as a ground-breaking means to offer the company’s technical framework and licensing infrastructure to interested parties.

In February, Yggdrasil launched the new Fusion Realms game mechanic, along with three new titles. One of the highlights of the Q1 was certainly the signing of 10 new license agreements, including the new deals with William Hill and Bwin, with the letter becoming Yggdrasil’s first partner on the Italian market.
