Gameloft is a leading gaming provider with more than 20 years of history. The company, created in 2000, has a passion for games and a desire to distribute them to even more players around the world. By bringing the wonders of games to mobile devices and, now, to all digital platforms, Gameloft has helped to create an entirely new market that has become the biggest one in gaming. We’re very excited that this company, which has revolutionized the gaming industry, has chosen to work with Akamai.

A portfolio for all digital platforms

A truly global business, Gameloft operates 18 studios worldwide that employ more than 3,600 people. Their portfolio boasts high-quality games for all digital platforms, which aim to engage players wherever they may be — from smartphone to PC and from Nintendo Switch to Apple Arcade. Gameloft offers a selection of more than 275 games, and also operates its own renowned franchises, such as “Asphalt," “Dungeon Hunter,” and “Modern Combat.” 

Industry-leading gaming experiences 

Gameloft works with major partners from the entertainment industry who also trust them to create amazing games (e.g., Disney, LEGO, Universal Illumination) that are a benchmark for the industry: multi-award–winning, critically acclaimed games that are downloaded by millions of players every day. Gameloft creates gaming experiences that expand beyond the boundaries of the game session to become entertainment platforms that populate the culture, from esports competitions to high-profile partnerships and from artist collaborations to symphonic orchestra concerts.

Supporting customers with a content delivery network and more

Top-level security and seamless performance allow Gameloft to deliver the experience that the fans of their fantastic games have grown to love and expect. Moreover, as a truly global business with such a wide distribution of customers and markets all over the world, Gameloft needed a content delivery network (CDN) provider to support their customers with excellent coverage and quality of service (QoS). This is why the team chose to collaborate with Akamai. 

Speaking about the collaboration with Akamai, Vincent Boiteau, SVP Products, Gameloft says, “We’re delighted with the quality we have been able to achieve. Akamai understood our needs perfectly and our users couldn’t be happier with the fast and seamless gaming experience we’ve been able to deliver. They also offered us a simple and straightforward payment method, which was very much appreciated.”

Enhancing speed and security with the Akamai game delivery network 

Our solutions are used by leading game providers to accelerate software downloads, content delivery, and user interactions. Akamai's game delivery network can enhance speed and security across cloud, web, and online platforms. We help ensure that the user experience is an exceptional one, that quality and reliability are achieved at scale, and that the solutions we provide are truly game-changing.
