The studio is expanding rapidly.
Dontnod Entertainment have enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in recent years, breaking out into the mainstream with Life is Strange and then continuing to grow further still with their subsequent releases. With a new studio in Montreal, Canada, Dontnod has set its sights on become an even larger studio- and it seems they’re set to become a lot more prolific in terms of how many releases they have in the pipeline.
Speaking in an interview with GamesBeat about the studio’s growth and what they have their sights set on for the future, Dontnod CEO Oskar Guilbert said that the developer currently has as many as half a dozen games in development at the same time. “Our studio is growing, with six games in production now,” he said. “Our recent releases have been very successful in terms of press reception and player reception. I’m very proud.”
One of the six that Guilbert mentions is probably Twin Mirror, which will be Dontnod’s first ever self-published game and will release on December 1. Beyond that, we also know Dontnod and Focus Home Interactive – who previously worked together on Vampyr – are collaborating on another project, which is said to be “one of the most ambitious in the history of the publisher and the studio.”
Recently, Dontnod Entertainment launched Tell Me Why in three episodes for Xbox One and PC in collaboration with Xbox Game Studios. You can read our review of the game through here.
