(Los Angeles, CA) ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE:EPY; OTC:EPYFF) and ThreeD Capital (CSE:IDK: OTC:IDKFF) today announce a new strategic partnership leveraging the partners’ eSports intellectual property, networks, and expertise. Recently, ePlay announced the release of the ePlay ES (eSports) series of games with Skillz (SKLZ). Through the partnership, ThreeD Capital expands its strategic eSports positions. The partnership will result in new sports and eSports titles, new marketing partnerships, and new revenue streams.
“ePlay is uniquely positioned with eSports intellectual property in sports, fitness, and entertainment segments,” says Sheldon Inwentash, CEO of ThreeD Capital. “The potential for revenue expansion, new titles, and new markets is very attractive.”
In addition to expertise and advisory roles ThreeD Capital and its principal have also invested directly in ePlay. ThreeD and ePlay will hit the ground running with existing and upcoming ePlay titles such as Howie Mandel’s Howie Go Viral, Outbreak ES, and Big Shot Basketball. New sports and fitness titles will also work their way to release and launch.
“Accelerating revenue generation of ePlay’s current mobile game and eSports portfolio, including ePlay games developed in partnership with producer and comedian Howie Mandel, plus the launch of upcoming titles and revenue streams, is an immediate, direct, and exciting result of working with ThreeD Capital,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital.
