Hasbro is gearing up to launch its Games.com online games portal, and has chosen Go2Net as its technology partner. Hasbro is looking to launch the game service sometime in the middle of next year, and plans to offer no fewer than fifty titles encompassing Hasbro properties like Atari, Wizards of the Coast, and Microprose. The majority of the planned online games will be multiplayer java versions of classic games like Monopoly, Clue, and Battleship. Go2Net will, under the terms of their three-year agreement with Hasbro, build the site and provide technology for chats, messages, and community management. Hasbro will gain accessing to games on or in development for Go2Nets PlaySite gaming service, while Go2Net gains the rights to Hasbro's most popular games for use on a co-branded site as well as $7.5 million fee from Hasbro. Hasbro plans to spend $60 million in the next year to launch and develop Games.com, and hopes to eventually expand the sight to six separate game channels focusing on family, kids, arcade, game shows, sports, and hardcore gamers.
