Electronic Arts announced that Remedy Entertainment, Focus Home Interactive, Iceberg Interactive, Strategy First, Macro Games, Selectsoft, and Legendo Entertainment have signed on to sell their games via the Origin digital distribution platform.

“The momentum that we’ve achieved with Origin since launching in June has been incredible, buoyed by great games and great partners,” said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President of Origin at EA. “Our fast-growing user base demonstrates the interest from gamers across the world in fully-connected, 365-day digital game experiences. We’re committed to evolving and expanding Origin to help players get the absolute most out of their games, and we’re just getting started.”
Earlier this week EA revealed that, since its launch in June of 2011, Origin has gained 9.3 million registered users and earned more than $100 million in revenue. Electronic Arts also claims that almost 40 percent of Star Wars: The Old Republic units sold have been through Origin.
