Remedy Entertainment announced today that it has signed a new publishing deal for multiple games. "Two multi-platform publishing deals," as the official press release described it, for games that are slated for next-gen consoles.
According to the official press release from Remedy themselves, the two agreements state that the new publisher, who isn't named in the press release, will fully fund development costs of the two new titles. Remedy will retain ownership of the new IP.
The first of these two games is a "AAA multi-platform game already in pre-production," which sounds like it'll be coming to consoles and PC alike. The second game is said to be much smaller in scale and scope, but is set within the same new world that the first game is going to establish. Considering the recent success of Remedy latest new IP, Control, there's a lot to look forward to here.
Crucially, both games are targeting next-gen consoles for release. They're not slated to launch for at least "the next few years" according to the press release, but the prospect of more Remedy games on new consoles is reason enough to be hopeful about this new publishing deal.
Aside from these two new projects, we already know that Remedy has at least one other AAA game in development at the moment. Additionally, Remedy is developing a single-player campaign for Smilegate's Crossfire X, as well as two DLC expansions for Control, and a very secretive multiplayer game in the works. That's plenty of projects for the developer by anyone's standards.
