Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 Interactive have announced today that they are working on a “premium action” RPG IP.
The unannounced RPG is set to have original combat mechanics and a unique ranking system tying in with the title’s “tight, visceral combat.”
Florian Stadlbauer and Jan Klose, Deck13 Interactive’s CEOs, warmly welcomed their new partnership with Focus Home Interactive, as they said that there has been “a lot of trust and confidence” put into their relationship with the French-based publisher.
“After our recent major project, the team at Deck13 is eager to take on the next challenge,” Klose added. “We have learned a lot and want to deliver an even greater experience to core gamers this time.”
While Focus Home Interactive has suggested that the official name of the RPG IP will be revealed sometime in the near future, the publisher has confirmed that the title will take place in a “dystopian sci-fi future.”
“We are ecstatic to announce this new partnership with one of the very best independent European development studios,” says Cédric Lagarrigue, CEO of Focus Home Interactive.
“We’ve been excited by Deck13’s new project since our first exchange with them, and as we’ve just got through the pre-production phase, we’re fully convinced by their capacities to deliver one of the most exciting RPGs to come in the future.”
Available in either a physical version or digital download, Deck13’s title is scheduled for release in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
