SK Telecom Co., South Korea's leading mobile company, said Monday it has secured rights to publish two online games produced by Sega Corp. in an effort to expand its business into the rising gaming industry.
The South Korean company said it has recently agreed with Sega Publishing Korea, the local unit of the Japanese game maker, to release "Sangokushi Taisen Online" and "Let's Make a Pro Baseball Team Online."
SK Telecom said the company is in the process of localizing the games and plans to begin service near the end of the year after creating a new game portal to be run by its gaming subsidiary.
The company said it is continuing discussions with Sega to secure rights for additional games, such as "Splash Golf" and "Let's Make a Pro Football Team Online."
SK Telecom also signed a deal to purchase a 30-percent stake in a Chinese online game company in May as it seeks to find new revenue sources amid the saturation of the local mobile market, the company added.
