Following in the steps of Asmodee, Passport Games along with GTS Distribution have announced an exclusive deal to only distribute Passport Games product through GTS. This means that anything released by Passport Games Studio, Funforge, Splotter, Granna, Rule & Make, and ThunderGryph will now exclusively be supplied by GTS. The step was taken in an effort to better control the value of the product from publisher to retailer and to better support retailers, and hopefully it will be able to do just that. But since GTS is one of the largest distribution companies in the US, I don’t think anyone will have to worry about games disappearing from shelves. You can read more about the deal in the press release below.
- Passport Game Studios will remain as a GTS brand, focused on bringing their partner studios’ games to the North American market.
- The GTS Distribution sales and marketing teams will handle all communications and services to hobby retailers for Passport-branded products moving forward.
- Passport titles in the U.S. are now exclusive to GTS Distribution, and will continue its international partnerships moving forward.
