Tropico 5 developer and publisher Kalypso Media has announced a new Berlin-based division which will focus on mobile game titles.

Kalypso Media Mobile GmbH will focus on content creation for Android and iOS and three games are already schedule for a 2014 release.

“Kalypso has a lot of great IP, such as Tropico, Dungeons and Port Royale, within its portfolio and it is really about time to follow the trends of cross-platform-entertainment and cloud-gaming,” commented Simon Hellwig, GM of Kalypso.

“Strategy and simulation games are especially under represented – specifically within the premium-price-segment –at the moment. This is a fast growing market and we think, as a part of our product diversification strategy, our games and brands deserve to become playable anywhere, any time.”

The first product will be announced “very soon” along with the new division’s responsible executives.
