Sega Europe has signed an agreement with Interior Night, a studio founded by former Quantic Dream lead Caroline Marchal in October 2017, to publish the studio’s first game—a new narrative-driven IP, the company announced.
Interior Night, which was formed with the goal of developing narrative games aimed at a mature TV audience, has been recruiting and currently employs staff whose credits include Heavy Rain, Wonderbook: Book of Spells, and Beyond: Two Souls.
The company is not saying anything more about the project at this time, but noted that it is the third publishing partnership Sega Europe has signed in recent years alongside Playsport Games (Motorsport Manager) and Two Point Studios (Two Point Hospital). It also noted that it has not acquired Interior Night.
