Game Makers Unplugging Android Efforts?


Beating iPhone seemed impossible but phones based on Google's Android platform, especially the new Droid on the Verizon Wireless cellular network in the U.S.. But Gameloft, a well known game developer and early supporter of the platform says that it and other Android developers are starting to trim back their future game efforts.

As reported in Reuters, Alexandre de Rochefort Gameloft's finance director told a group of investors that the reasons for the disenchantment with Google's Android comes from "weakness of Android's appliacaion store" and "nobody is making significant revenue [on Android]."

Where might Gameloft focus on for future development? Rochefort's company made 13% of its revenue last quarter on iPhone/iPod Touch.
