Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Dontnod Entertainment have announced that Vampyr, the bloodsucking role-playing game released last June has sold more than one million units across all platforms.
Due to this newfound success, the companies have decided to renew their partnership for a new project that promises to be “one of the most ambitious in the history of the publisher and the studio.”
John Bert, COO of Focus Home Interactive, said:
“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 added:
“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.”
Hopefully, this will allow Dontnod to pitch and work on Vampyr 2 somewhere in the near future. Before you go, why not read our review of Vampyr from last year?
