stc Group joins forces with Blacknut to democratize Cloud Gaming across MENA

  • Providing an outstanding gaming experience to millions of gamers across the region

PARIS — After a successful collaboration in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia powered by cloud infrastructure provider Radian Arc, Saudi Telecom Company (stc Group), a digital communications leader, is entering into a long term strategic partnership with Blacknut, to promote its leading B2B/B2B2C Cloud Gaming solution across the MENA region.

As the next frontier in the interactive entertainment industry, Cloud Gaming enables access to premium and high quality content to a whole new generation of gamers, without the need for dedicated hardware. Thanks to 4G/5G and broadband connectivity, it is now possible for end-users to enjoy a large catalogue of licensed games in just one click and on all their connected devices.

The partnership will support stc’s strategy to bring gaming into its entertainment ecosystem in a seamless, personalised & secured manner. Accessing PC/Console quality-grade titles will be as easy as to consume videos or other types of media.

For Blacknut this is not only an opportunity to expand in the MENA region but also to leverage the experience of such a key partner as stc to co-develop new gamer-centric and social features integrated within a unified media experience.

“Partnering with such a prestigious company as stc Group to develop the MENA Cloud Gaming ecosystem is the logical next step in our growth as we see exponential demand in the region. The partnership will allow us to leverage stc Group experience and existing user-base, as well as to expand our functionalities to offer new exciting ways to play and interact together,” said Olivier Avaro, CEO at Blacknut.
