505 Games, a subsidiary of Digital Bros., has entered a partnership with industry veterans Limbic Entertainment, a development studio best known for its work on the Might & Magic franchise in cooperation with Ubisoft and their current on Tropico 6 with Kalypso. 505 has acquired the worldwide publishing and marketing rights to Limbic Entertainment’s next title, an unannounced online survival sandbox game.
The partnership with Limbic Entertainment follows another recently announced 505 publishing deal with Paul Neurath and Warren Spector’s OtherSide Entertainment on Underworld Ascendant, the next-generation sequel to the landmark Underworld franchise.
“We are always on the lookout for new development partners who bring something unique to our diverse and indie-focused portfolio, and Limbic Entertainment’s new project does exactly that,” said Tim Woodley, SVP of global brand and marketing, 505 Games. “The team at Limbic is pushing the limits of the online multiplayer survival genre, putting a fresh spin on an emergent game world and an innovative character progression, and we’re looking forward to having a part in bringing that to players around the world.”
Helmed by industry veterans Stephan Winter and Alexander Frey, Limbic Entertainment was founded in 2002, and together its team has developed more than 60 games, released in more than a dozen countries. “Our team is excited to dive into creating a new IP, and we are especially happy with the creative freedom in our cooperation with 505 Games,” said Stephan Winter, CEO, Limbic Entertainment. “505 is making a name for itself as a great publishing partner, and we knew right away they were the right company to embark on this project with us, as we move to defy the current limitations of the survival genre. We think players will really respond to this game, and we’re looking forward to sharing more details soon.”
Limbic Entertainment is currently entering full production on its upcoming title by growing the project team to 40 developers and is currently accepting resumes for professionals interested in working on this project. For more information, please visit: limbic-entertainment.de/jobs.
