Focus Home Interactive and French developer Asobo Studio have announced The Plague, a new action adventure title in development for consoles and PC.

The Plague, which is currently wrapping up pre-production, will be unveiled on February 1 and 2 at What’s Next de Focus, a Paris event showcasing games currently in production.

Sebastian Wloch, CEO of Asobo

“Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio. For this ambitious project, we needed the full support of a strong and growing publisher. The Focus team, through their professionalism, enthusiasm and openness, have naturally established themselves as the ideal partners to bring the experience we wish to offer to players.”

Cédric Lagarrigue, President of Focus Home Interactive

“It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio. This new signature confirms our results and know-how on the support of talented independent studios such as Dontnod, Deck13, Giants Software, Cyanide, New World Interactive and Larian on increasingly ambitious projects worldwide. There is a real upscaling of our catalog and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.”
