John Bert, COO of Focus Home Interactive said of the partnership;

We are delighted to continue the adventure with the team at DONTNOD who have already amply demonstrated their talents to create rich universes, enhanced by a masterful narrative and unique artistic direction.

We are proud to once again allow the talent of the studio to express itself on this new project which is intended to be among the most ambitious in the history of FOCUS and DONTNOD.

DONTNOD CEO Oskar Guilbert said; 

We are excited to be strengthening our successful relationship with FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE. Their proven and effective marketing, their ability to address new digital distribution channels, their experienced teams and the convergence of our editorial visions makes FOCUS an ideal partner for our new game.

Vampyr is a great success and we are very happy to develop this partnership with this exciting new project.

In our review of Vampyr, we wrote “Vampyr has its flaws, but even with them, it’s a great game. I had a tremendous time exploring London, uncovering the mystery of its epidemic and learning about the role of vampires in society. Helping matters greatly is that Dr Reid is incredibly likeable and easy to empathise with. ”

With the new collaboration being called “one of the most ambitious in the history” of publisher and developer, we are certainly excited to see what they come up with.
