LONDON, 30th of March, 2020 – Flexion Mobile Plc (Nasdaq: FLEXM), the Android games distribution company today announced that it has been working with Wargaming to support Huawei's new flagship device Huawei P40 that launched last week in Paris. Wargaming is an award-winning online game developer and publisher, one of the leaders in the free-to-play massively multiplayer online game (MMO) market. As a result of the work, their top grossing game World of Tanks Blitz will be available in Huawei App Gallery from official launch. World of Tanks Blitz offers 7 vs 7 dynamic tank combat on mobile. The game is free to download and play, and has over 120 million installs worldwide.

Flexion has previously announced that it is supporting game developers by making their games compatible with the new Huawei devices. Flexion and Wargaming have been working together since 2016 and have together launched World of Tanks Blitz in most alternative distribution channels. World of Tanks Blitz is a top performing title in most stores where it is distributed.

"Our partnership with Wargaming has grown over the years and World of Tanks Blitz is the perfect showcase for alternative distribution. It is a great partnership and we are looking forward to growing the partnership further, says Jens Lauritzson, CEO of Flexion Mobile PLC.

Flexion has strategic partnerships with a number of key channels such as Huawei, Samsung  Xiaomi, Onestore and Amazon to help game developers reach a wider audience outside Google Play.
