Many know Techland as the developer of the excellent 1st person, action role-playing, survival horror game Dying Light, but soon they hope to also be known for publishing.
“We have an important announcement: As of now we are a Global Publisher,” Techland announced on Twitter. The company plans to release two major multiplatform titles, in addition to four digital games each year. Details about their first game will be shared soon.
CEO of Techland, Pawel Marchewka, writes in a press release, “As a developer, we have worked with many renowned publishers in the past so we know first-hand what makes these kinds of collaborations efficient and satisfying for both parties, after the successful promotional campaigns for Dying Light and Dying Light: The Following, led by our own dedicated team, we believe this is the perfect time to use everything we’ve learned and help other developers.”
Continuing, he explains, “We believe in a flexible and open publishing philosophy, based on respect for the players. We will encourage and financially support developers through investing in bold, unconventional games with great entertainment value.”
There’s nothing wrong with a little ambition, and it’s plain to see the team has a lot to offer. Are you excited for some Techland published games? Or would you rather they just focus on making the next Dying Light? Let us know in the comments.
