Today, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced its collaboration with French studio Asobo for the development of action-adventure game The Plague, coming to PC and consoles.
Developed by Asobo, who assisted in the development of ReCore, The Plague is currently in pre-production with the game set to be officially unveiled at the beginning of February during What’s Next de Focus, a Paris-based event showcasing games currently in production at Focus Home Interactive.
After its announcement both developer and publisher released the following statements:
Sebastian Wloch, CEO of Asobo:
“Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio. For this ambitious project, we needed the full support of a strong and growing publisher. The Focus team, through their professionalism, enthusiasm and openness, have naturally established themselves as the ideal partners to bring the experience we wish to offer to players.”
Cédric Lagarrigue, Focus Home Interactive President:
“It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio. This new signature confirms our results and know-how on the support of talented independent studios such as Dontnod, Deck13, Giants Software, Cyanide, New World Interactive and Larian on increasingly ambitious projects worldwide. There is a real upscaling of our catalogue and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.
More information for The Plague will be revealed during What’s Next de Focus, taking place February 1st and 2nd.
