Yesterday, we reported on Focus Home Interactive inking a new deal with Life is Strange developer Dontnod, but the French publisher apparently had a number of other partnerships to announce at their annual Paris event. In addition to their renewed partnerships with Dontnod, Deck13, Saber Interactive, and Asobo, Focus is also partnering with a number of new studios, as well.
Sumo Digital, developers behind games like Crackdown 3, Snake Pass, and the in-development Team Sonic Racing, has signed a publishing deal with Focus, though it is not clear if it is for one of Sumo’s indie games or something new. It will specifically be Sumo Newcastle, a newly-acquired studio that previously worked on Eve: Valkryie. Focus has also signed new deals with Limestone, Lightbulb Crew, and Gasket Games.
As for Dontnod, it does not appear that their next game will be a follow up to the million-selling Vampyr. While there’s only an image to go off, which you can see at the top of the story, it looks to be a different tone and environment from what Vampyr treaded in.
You can take a look at the images for all the games planned by Focus Home Interactive below.
