Focus Home Interactive plans to spread the plague in Paris next month.
You better start taking your vitamins and stocking up on supplies. Publisher Focus Home Interactive today announced it will be collaborating with French studio Asobo on the development of their upcoming action-adventure game called The Plague, which is currently planned for release on PC and consoles and will be unveiled next month to attendees of What’s Next de Focus, the Paris event showcasing titles being published by Focus Home Interactive.
“Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio,” says Sebastian Wloch, CEO of Asobo. 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. ”
“It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio,” says Cdric Lagarrigue, president of Focus Home Interactive. 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 catalog and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.
The Plague, which is currently in its pre-production stage, will be showcased in its early form at What’s Next de Focus on February 1st and 2nd in Paris.
