Connected Gaming Week - May 22

by Wonacott Communications

As we prepare for Memorial Day weekend, we’re sad to say that this is our final Connected Gaming Week. Although sending out our final newsletter feels bittersweet, we set a goal six years ago to get the word out on online and multiplayer games at a time when such titles weren’t getting a lot of attention – but thankfully, the industry has changed and genuinely embraced connected gaming in a big way. And so, for one final time, we sign off – thanks, as always, for reading Connected Gaming Week. Please feel free to follow Wonacott PR on Twitter, Facebook, and on our official blog for more game industry, PR and marketing insights.
