The Verizon 5G NFL Mobile Gaming Challenge
Partners: Verizon, NFL

Launched at E3 2019, this Challenge asked companies to submit pitches for games only possible with 5G that integrate the official NFL brand. 5 studios were chosen to build prototypes at the Finalist Game Jam. The quality of submissions and teams was so high that 2 winners were each chosen to receive $400,000 to bring their prototype to a full game that will launch at Super Bowl LIV. As the official Challenge Implementation Partner, Playcrafting helped build, launch, and promote the initiative then support developers nationwide to submit their best possible pitches. For finalists and winners, Playcrafting is there to help manage the development pipeline to ensure the best possible games are released and it’s a positive experience for all involved.

5G Jams with Verizon
Partner: Verizon 5G Lab

What wasn’t possible for mobile before is now made possible with 5G cloud gaming. Playcrafting partnered with the Verizon 5G Lab for an exclusive 48 hour game jam with 20 of New York’s top game developers. The jam brought together 5 teams of 4 developers to create 5 games total that are only possible with 5G. The only limitation of this jam was that there was no limitations. As a result, developers generated games with layered effects and mechanics that showed how 5G allows for games streaming to mobile devices with essentially unlimited bandwidth and near-zero latency.
