Techland (Dying Light, Dead Island) has announced a bold move into the global publishing market.
The new publishing arm of their company will be known as Techland Publishing. While the developer has over two decades of experience as a game developer, they’ve also acted as a game distributor and publisher within central and eastern Europe. Coming from this, a move to become a global publisher makes sense.
“As a developer, we have worked with many renowned publishers in the past so we know first-hand what makes these kinds of collaborations efficient and satisfying for both parties,” Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka said in a statement. After the successful promotional campaigns for Dying Light and Dying Light: The Following, led by our own dedicated team, we believe this is the perfect time to use everything we’ve learned and help other developers.”
“We believe in a flexible and open publishing philosophy, based on respect for the players. We will encourage and financially support developers through investing in bold, unconventional games with great entertainment value.
We know Techland is working on two big multiplatform titles, one of which we already know will be an open world, fantasy game with some RPG elements.
“Our goal is to release two major multiplatform titles, and four in digital distribution each year. We’re already scanning the market for opportunities and we’ll announce the first game to be released under Techland Publishing soon,” Marchewka said.
