Skyrocket’s content development and distribution division, The Games Company (TGC), join a host of studios and developers on the YG Masters programme that has seen partners design, develop and distribute content using Yggdrasil’s technology and global network.
Launched at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Skyrocket Entertainment transforms iconic Hollywood feature films and branded intellectual property rights into content for real and social money gaming. The company recently acquired the international rights to 75 feature films including Rambo 4, The Expendables, and The Fallen franchise.

Skyrocket’s TGC will have access to GATI, Yggdrasil’s preconfigured, regulation-ready development toolkit, enabling studios and game developers to use a standardised technology solution to develop and effectively distribute games anywhere in the world.

I am positive that our customers and their players will enjoy the innovative games delivered from our Skyrocket partnership.”
This means YG Masters partners can source, build and distribute content, as well as accelerate global reach, finding new ways to increase revenues, all using one standardised interface.
GATI is the enabler of the Yggdrasil Decentralised Aggregation Network (DAN). All Yggdrasil partners integrated to GATI will be able to cross-sell their games to any global Yggdrasil Franchisee.
