Milestone has signed a deal with Dorna which keeps them as the developer of the MotoGP game until 2026.
Milestone will remain as the developer and publisher of the MotoGP game franchise as the gaming industry heads into the next generation of consoles with the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, this includes optimisation for new PC technology as video games become more realistic and the consoles become more powerful meaning games can be much more detailed and realistic.
Milestone has also signed an agreement to become a title sponsor for a Grand Prix event for the first time and will sponsor at least one race every season from 2021 to 2026. Dorna and Milestones collaboration will help to continue the growth of the MotoGP eSport championship where racers across the world battle for the elusive MotoGP eChampionship.
Luisa Bixio, Milestone CEO: “We’re honoured to extend, for another five years, our long-standing partnership with Dorna Sports. Together we brought the excitement of MotoGP races onto all gaming platforms for players all over the world, and we entertained them with compelling MotoGP eSport Championships. With next-generation consoles and new gaming platforms coming soon, there will be even more opportunities to delight MotoGP fans and players in the next future.”
Klemens Kundratitz, Koch Media Holding GmbH CEO: “Milestone continue to prove their quality with securing the prestigious MotoGP license for another five years, and we are proud to work alongside them.”
Pau Serracanta, Dorna Sports Managing Director: “This new agreement is great news for both MotoGP™ and Milestone, and I’m delighted to see the relationship continue for at least another five years. Our partnership began in 2012 and has seen some incredible success, both in terms of the fantastic MotoGP videogame and the ever-growing MotoGP eSport Championship. To see Milestone take top billing at a Grand Prix each season as part of this new agreement is testament to that and I’m excited to see what the future holds as our collaboration continues and begins a new decade.”
