Amidst the news that Vampyr and Call of Cthulhu would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, publisher Focus Home Interactive has quite a lot of other suff in the pipeline as well. We already know about its partnership with Dontnod Entertainment of Life is Strange fame for an ambitious new project. But the publisher will also be working with Sumo Newcastle (known for EVE: Valkyrie) on a new “uncompromising multiplayer experience.”
Other interesting points in the company’s plan for 2019 include Deck13’s The Surge 2 launching in “a few months”, though a more concrete release date wasn’t provided. Focus Home Interactive did confirm that it would be working with the studio on a new IP after that. It will also be working with World War Z developer Saber Interactive on two more games. One is confirmed to be based on Warhammer.
Asobo Studio, which has A Plague Tale: Innocence coming up next month, will also continue its partnership with Focus as well. In what capacity the two will collaborate is unclear. But on another note, the publisher owns the rights to Call of Cthulhu for the next ten years. Whether that’s a good thing following its most recent title is a different matter.
