Meridian4MontrealMeridian4 has signed a multi-title digital publishing agreement with RTL Interactive Games Publishing, a subsidiary of RTL Television in Germany and part of Europe’s leading entertainment network RTL Group, to release four titles into North America.

The titles covered in this agreement include: the crime-solving action arcade racing game sequel; Crash Time 2, the very unique racing team management game, aptly named Racing Team Manager, the third sequel in the very successful sports series; Biathlon 2009 and to make you forget about the scorching hot Summer heat, the market leader in winter sports compilations; Winter Sports 2009 – The Next Challenge.

Birgit Hönsch, Head of Games Publishing & Licensing at RTL interactive comments: “We are happy to enlarge our games’ presence in the North American market due to this agreement with Meridian4 and are confident in establishing a long lasting partnership.”

“We met RTL at one of the many Game Connection events that we attended and were very impressed with the quality of their games, but like a lot of games from Europe, they didn’t have a lot of exposure here in North America. We wanted to correct that situation and have started with these four games.” said Andy Sher, CEO at Meridian4. “We are very excited to be working with RTL and hope that the North American gamers enjoy these games and hopefully many more titles from this partnership.”Crash Time 2
