SYBO has announced Subway Surfers Tag, a new franchise extension, debuting exclusively on Apple Arcade on July 15. The spinoff based on the mobile game takes players through exciting interactive arenas as they skate, grind and tag toward a new high score.
"Subway Surfers Tag comes on the heels of our 10th anniversary as well as the recent acquisition of SYBO by Miniclip, and there is no better way to celebrate," says Mathias Gredal Nørvig, chief executive officer, SYBO Games. “The game is a labor of love, celebrating our incredible characters and it carries the original DNA of Subway Surfers: rebellious, playful and adventurous. Take a look at the Coming Soon product page: Apple.co/-SubwaySurfersTag, we believe our fans will be delighted!”
"We’ve been eager to expand the brand and provide a new player experience, and are thrilled to debut it on Apple Arcade,” says Eoin O’Doherty, game director, SYBO Games. “Not only is it a great reward to iOS players who have helped keep Subway Surfers at the top of the charts for a decade, it represents our first expansion outside of the endless runner genre, in a massive way.”
Designed exclusively for Apple Arcade, in Subway Surfers Tag, players join the Subway Surfers crew across multiple off-limit, interactive city locations.
In late June, SYBO Games announced it was acquired by Miniclip. The acquisition, set to complete this July, further propels SYBO’s reach across the globe while continuing to operate its gaming and creative teams.
Subway Surfers launched on the Apple Store in May 2012. One week after its release in the App Store, Subway Surfers was the number one downloaded game in 20 countries and soon after that, the number one in 50 countries, including the U.S. In September 2015, three years after its debut, Subway Surfers reached one billion downloads worldwide.
