Playlogic leaps to PS3
Dutch publisher signs worldwide publishing agreement to distribute titles on Sony's latest console.
Last week, Playlogic announced that it had signed a publishing agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment America to self-publish its own games on the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable in the US. However, oddly absent from that list was Sony's latest console, the PlayStation 3. Today, though, Playlogic has revealed that it has reached an agreement with Sony to publish PS3 games worldwide.
Though Playlogic currently has no scheduled PS3 projects on the horizon, the Dutch publisher and developer does have 10 games in the works. These include Obscure: The Aftermath; Officers; Age of Pirates: Captain Blood; Evil Days of Luckless John; and Dragon Hunters. This year, the publisher has put out WorldForge's Ancient Wars: Sparta and Metropolis' Infernal for the PC.
Earlier this week, Playlogic also announced that it had partnered with Ignition Entertainment to distribute Obscure: The Aftermath (previously known as Obscure 2) for the PC, PS2, and Wii, as well as Xyanide Resurrection for the PS2 in North America. A release window for either game was not revealed.
As to why said games weren't part of Playlogic's deal with Sony, a representative of the company told GameSpot that the deal with Ignition had been signed before the application process with SCEA had wrapped up.
