LONDON, UK - November 3, 2004 - SEGAÃ‚Â® Europe Ltd, has announced a new release date for Immortal Cities: Children Of The NileTM for PC CD-Rom to provide greater support and awareness for this remarkable, breakthrough title. In order to maximise on market specifics the European language versions will launch January 28th, with the English language launch hot on their heels at February 4th. The decision to move the release date was made by key marketing executives at SEGA who feel Immortal Cities will greatly benefit by steering clear of this year's cluttered holiday climate. The extra time will be used to build on a core fan consumer base through extended Marketing and PR activities.
"The successful release of Immortal Cities: Children Of The NileTM is extremely important to SEGA Europe, across the initial launch period and through to post launch sell-through activity," commented Mike Hayes, Managing Director, SEGA Europe. "This game deserves a greater spotlight, and we believe moving it into the first quarter will provide this. We've been pleased to hear such positive publicity and consumer response to the game's beautiful, expansive and unique gameplay. Tilted Mill deserves the additional attention, and consumers will be thrilled when they see how much city building and real time strategy gaming has evolved through Immortal Cities."
Between now and January 2005, Immortal Cities: Children Of The NileTM will be the focus of an exceptional marketing and advertising campaign including press and TV coverage, demos, store displays, and internet updates.
