Bigben, the French game publisher has struck an agreement with Focus Home Interactive, to be the publisher and distributer of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood. Cyanide have been under the Bigben group banner since early 2018, and already having worked on the game for two years, they are still carrying on developing the title.
Since Werewolf was announced there has been a slow yet palpable increase in interest towards the adaptation of the famous roleplaying game.
In Werewolf: The Apocalypse , an RPG adaption of the famous rpg you play as Cahal, a werewolf banished from his home, who is forced to return in order to save the lives of his clan. Armed with teeth, claws and an increasing mastery of a brutal rage, his quest of vengeance will be pivotal in saving the land from a polluting corporation, known as Pentax.
Alain Falc, Bigben’s CEO, declares “We are thrilled to have reached this agreement which considers, in an equitable way, the different parties’ investments. This will allow Cyanide to keep the ball rolling on the game’s development and to give its numerous fans a really unique experience, in a universe that gamers are very fond of,”
“The intense action and desperate supernatural danger of Werewolf is a perfect fit for BigBen,” said Shams Jorjani, VP Business Development at Paradox Interactive, and interim manager at White Wolf. “And this is happening at the best time, because of our renewed focus on brand management and licensing. This allows us to give our partners exactly what they need to develop amazing customer experiences in their licensed products. Video games always have been a key pillar to White Wolf’s brand strategy: they’re an incredibly powerful medium for great World of Darkness stories! So, we are looking forward very much to this partnership, and to many others, in the months and years ahead.”
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood will be available on both PC and consoles in 2020.
