The best content in the world means nothing if it isn’t distributed in the correct way. Wired have spent years building each vital component of the distribution chain. Starting with all the digital shops for the various console formats in each local region: Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. Wired have sales in each territory including Russia, Korean and Japan.
Having been in the industry for over twenty years, experience has shown where to successfully scout and acquire the next titles. Every major show is attended, and relationships with developers and partners have grown strong over the years. Whether Wired sign a game or not, the policy is to give honest feedback to the developer, so they too can use that information to help their own path and future. Every game submitted is evaluated carefully, going through a stringent series of processes, from a sales potential, marketability, gameplay and competition standpoint before being signed. If a member of the team can’t give a game three great reasons to buy it, and mean it, it is likely we won't sign. Wired have a policy of publishing games that they enjoy playing, and adopt an inclusive approach so that all members of the team have a voice in the decision whether to sign a game or not. This ensures a complete buy-in for the developer and their game.
Wired have accounts with all the main PC digital outlets, including Steam, Epic Store, GamesPlanet, Greenmangaming, Humble Bundle, Fanatical, and many others accounting for 95% of the PC market. Wired have accounts in the emerging streaming space – with games launching in the Utomik network.
Over recent years, many Publishers made the mistake of moving away from the retail environment. Physical game sales still account for 34% of the market. Wired have made it a mission to be in every games retailer globally: via direct distribution or via established local distribution partners. Wired games are currently sold in most major countries and major retailers, etailers and leading independent stores.
