WGT Launches MLB.com Baseball Game on Facebook


WGT Baseball Game in FacebookSan Francisco-based company WGT, previously known as World Golf Tour, is a developer of online sports games. The games are designed to be realistic and appealing to sports fans. For 2012, WGT officially launched “WGT Baseball:MLB” in Facebook. The game has captured the attention of 200,000 Facebook users per month, with a growing user base.

WGT Baseball:MLB puts its users inside a ballpark just like a real baseball game, in a high definition virtual reality format. The players can make strategic decisions for the game, compete opposite another player, and hit a home run, all in a realistic way.

The speedy growth of WGT Baseball:MLB is due in part to the success of the company’s flagship game, World Golf Tour. World Golf Tour has become the largest online golf game, reaching over five million registered players. High definition photography and patented technology are used to recreate famous golf courses all over the world. The game also features The Olympic Club, which is the host for the 2012 US Open.

The company has been renamed from World Golf Tour to WGT, with the intention of expanding and bringing other sports into the world of virtual reality. “Our vision has been to expand sports media by developing realistic social sports games that engage sports fans. It’s exciting to already see our baseball game become the largest currently on Facebook and have a partner like MLB Advanced Media to help reach baseball fans worldwide,” said YuChiang Cheng, co-founder and CEO of WGT.
