Daedalic Entertainment will announce six new titles over the coming weeks, and promised that 2019 will host its “most ambitious and diverse” lineup ever, ranging from “new IP to old classics coming to console and in-house AAA productions.”
The six titles planned to be announced in the coming weeks span a variety of genres, including turn-based RPG, cooperative roguelike, survival MMO, and classic adventure.
On the topic of the publisher’s 2019 lineup, Daedalic Entertainment CEO and founder Carsten Fichtelmann said in a press release, “2019 will be by far the most successful year in the history of our studio, we’ve never had a more diverse and substantial portfolio. We continue to build and move forward by diversifying our line-up with high-quality titles across different genres. I am not only talking about our publishing division here. We have development teams in-house working on AAA projects on a scale that will astonish our fans and media. With IPs like this, we aim to create a stir that goes beyond the gaming industry.”
Going forward, Daedalic plans to put more emphasis on post-launch support of its titles. “Naturally, we have closely monitored the shift towards Games-as-a-Service in the last few years and a big part of our line-up fits this approach perfectly,” Fichtelmann said. “We want to offer players high-quality content for these games over months and years after release.”
Fitchelmann also assured that Daedalic still plans to deliver its trademark adventure games throughout the year. “Adventures have always been a cornerstone of our success. Our community can look forward to some of our most popular and iconic titles becoming available for consoles throughout the year.”
Goodbye Deponia, the third adventure in the Deponia series, launched for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 30. Intruders: Hide and Seek, a PlayStation VR-compatible thriller developed by the Madrid-based Tessera Studios, will be “the first of many new [Daedalic] publishing titles to come” when it launches on February 13.
