A first version of The Plague, planned for Windows and consoles, will be unveiled in February at What's Next de Focus. This event in Paris showcases games by Focus Home Interactive. An early version of the game will be presented, as The Plague is currently in pre-production.
At this point, little (okay, nothing) is known about the game's narrative. However, more info and visuals are planned for February.
Sebastian Wloch, CEO, Asobo: Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio," says For this ambitious project, we needed the full support of a strong and growing publisher. The Focus team, through their professionalism, enthusiasm and openness, have naturally established themselves as the ideal partners to bring the experience we wish to offer to players.
Cédric Lagarrigue, President, Focus Home Interactive: It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio. This new signature confirms our results and know-how on the support of talented independent studios such as Dontnod, Deck13, Giants Software, Cyanide, New World Interactive and Larian on increasingly ambitious projects worldwide. There is a real upscaling of our catalog and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.
