After bringing to life Vikings, Jumanji, Planet of the Apes, and its rock slot trilogy that everyone keeps on talking about. NetEnt is getting ready to step up their game again. In fact, in a recent interview NetEnt CEO Therese Hillman announce two upcoming slots. And they could well be game changers. For now, we’re unsure when exactly these two games will go live but here’s what we know so far.
There’s no doubt that NetEnt new CEO has something to prove. In fact, after replacing long-standing CEO Per Eriksson, about one year ago. She was quick to set up a new strategy in motion that banked on more innovation, and re-inventing games that proved to be successful.
So it’s with no surprise that we hear that NetEnt is planning to add to its rock trilogy. In fact, in 2019 the Prince of Darkness will entertain you once again. But this time in the form of a slot game. When talking about the upcoming Ozzy slot, Hillman said with much enthusiasm that “Ozzy is going to be something very special.” Does it mean that NetEnt will create new mechanics like they did when releasing Guns n’ Roses back in 2016?
When talking about the second branded game inspired by Conan the barbarian, Hillman showed a bit less enthusiasm. But still appeared pleased with the upcoming release. She when on record and said, “I think Conan is a great brand and its perfect for a slot game.”
It’s true that NetEnt likes to keep its cards close to its chest when it comes to upcoming slots. In fact, their games roadmap only goes live one quarter at the time. And generally speaking, they tempt to release new branded games in Europe when the market is at its best.
So we think it’s unlikely we’ll see any of these two games go live before Q3 or Q4. After all, we all know that players are seeking for new games to try when the winter weather returns. So if we had to make a guess, we’d say Conan will go live in September. And Ozzy should land in the lobby of your favourite online casino in November. Apparently, NetEnt is also always on the lookout for Brands that fits the company’s mentality to convert into slots. So who knows what other branded games they’ll launch this year.
