KontrolFreek, creators of the popular FPS Freek, has announced major licensing deals with the Call of Duty and Destiny franchises. The partnerships include several new products that will launch throughout 2016, and will be co-branded and designed to optimize gameplay in each AAA title.
Building off of a successful partnership in 2015, Activision is continuing its relationship with KontrolFreek for 2016. In 2015, KontrolFreek, in partnership with Activision, developed five Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty Championship themed products for release, including the popular KontrolFreek Call of Duty Black Ops III Jugger-Nog thumbstick.
KontrolFreek has also announced a licensing deal with Bungie to create new products for Destiny.
“The team is thrilled to be working with KontrolFreek to introduce new thumbsticks and even more for Destiny,” said Jim McQuillan, Visual Identity and Brand Creative Director at Bungie. “This year we’re hoping to work together with KontrolFreek to create some unique designs that embody the Destiny experience for our fans.”
