gameloftA few days ago, Gameloft was explaining why Android sucks and they were pulling dev dollars in favor of the iPhone. Other developers felt differently, including… apparently… Gameloft?

Today the company posted a press release with the title “Gameloft Supports The 2nd Generation of Android Phones“:

Paris – Gameloft®, a world leader in the publishing and development of downloadable video games, plans to launch High Definition games on next generation Android phones like the Motorola Droid and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.

“The arrival of this new generation of phones will allow the development of High Definition games that make the most of the technological capacity and the speed of execution offered by the new Android phones. Consumers will benefit from a top quality gaming experience,” says Gonzague de Vallois, vice-president of Publishing at Gameloft.

Gameloft also continues to support the current generation of Android phones and announces the imminent arrival of titles such as Assassin’s Creed. These titles will be accessible on the Android Marketplace and Gameloft internet sites and will further strengthen our catalogue of Android games already available.

Perhaps I’m confused with the definition of support because I could have sworn in that other article I read something where Gameloft finance director Alexandre de Rochefort said:

“We have significantly cut our investment in Android platform, just like … many others.”

I guess they were referring the THIRD definition of support from

“to undergo or endure, esp. with patience or submission; tolerate.”

Regardless of the flip-flopping, you’ll soon have Assassin’s Creed and other Gameloft games at your disposal. And if you’ve got the Motorola Droid or are getting the Xperia X10, I would expect Gameloft to have some pretty awesome titles upcoming.
