Following the success of Vampyr, publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Dontnod Entertainment have announced a renewal of their partnership for a new project that promises to be “one of the most ambitious in the history of the publisher and the studio.”
Vampyr, the companies’ first collaborative work, launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in June 2018 and has since sold more than one million units. A Switch version was announced in October 2018, but has yet to receive a release date.
“We are delighted to continue the adventure with the team at Dontnod who have already amply demonstrated their talents to create rich universes, enhanced by a masterful narrative and unique artistic direction,” Focus Home Interactive COO John Bert said in a press release. “We are proud to once again allow the talent of the studio to express itself on this new project which is intended to be among the most ambitious in the history of Focus and Dontnod.”
Dontnod Entertainment CEO Oskar Guilbert added, “We are excited to be strengthening our successful relationship with Focus Home Interactive. Their proven and effective marketing, their ability to address new digital distribution channels, their experienced teams and the convergence of our editorial visions makes Focus an ideal partner for our new game. Vampyr is a great success and we are very happy to develop this partnership with this exciting new project.”
