Focus Home Interactive has announced the acquisition of Deck13, creators of The Surge and Lords of the Fallen. As the press release reads, Deck13 has been a long-time partner of Focus Home Interactive, and has developed over 20 games in the past 18 years.
This acquisition will enable Focus Home Interactive to take full control of the intellectual Property of the games developed. Furthermore, the publisher has acquired its publishing service for indie-developments.
The last game that Deck13 developed was The Surge 2. The last update for this game came out in February 2020. Thus, we can assume that the team is currently working on its next project. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough information about this project.
Deck13 was planning to publish the SNES-style JRPG, Chained Echoes, on the PC in 2021. After this acquisition, Focus Home Interactive will handle the game’s publishing duties.
Moreover, and while Lords of the Fallen 2 is under development, a completely different team is working on it.
