I hope these are flexible and could increase as it seems on average more games are releasing / getting huge updates per month, and this trend may continue


#3

How likely is it that my game could get featured for a second time on pc following it’s tablet featuring? I was told there would be more featuring opportunities in future, but I’m not really sure what that means.


#4

I believe there is a 6 month wait period between featurings.


#5

Oh okay, I think I’d heard this before, makes sense. Thanks for the help!


#6

These numbers are flexible depending on the specific featuring round. As you mentioned, it might increase in the future as we continue to see this trend.


#7

We recommend following up on the private message and the team can schedule your game to a specific featuring date on other platforms.


#8

The Featuring round on December 25th has been cancelled.
