SEGA Jumps On To The Origin Bandwagon

Electronic Arts announced today that SEGA would be joining the line up on their online service Origin. 

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Origin. The PC Market is continuing to grow and the prospect of offering the Total War franchise and the SEGA range of PC titles to the Origin audience is very exciting,” commented John Clark, UK Managing Director and PC Digital Distribution Director at SEGA.

SEGA’s highly popular Total War Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai will be the first among many titles to be made available through EA’s online service with more to come in the future.  The Steam competitor has been lining up a number of publishers outside of their own house.  Publishers Team 17 Software Limited, Rebellion, Kalypso Media Digital Ltd. and more joined ranks alongside SEGA to bring Origin’s number of partners to 35.

“By partnering with publishers like SEGA, we’re able to bring even more of the industry’s best games to players on Origin,” said Craig Rechenmacher, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for Origin at EA. “With 11 million registered users around the world, Origin is fast becoming the destination for consumers looking for fresh new content to play with their friends.”
