Square Enix Collective announced they will be publishing Bulkhead Interactive’s multiplayer World War 2 shooter Battalion 1944 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Recently, Bulkhead Interactive launched The Turning Test through the collective and now they plan to partner up with the team again to release their latest title.
Last year, Battalion 1944 ran a successful crowdfunding campaign that promised to recapture the “core action of classic multiplayer FPS games” and bring it to modern consoles.
Phil Elliott, Director of Community & Indie Development at Square Enix Limited comments about the the partnership:
From having partnered with Bulkhead before on the hugely successful The Turing Test, we know they’re a very talented studio making great games. We trust Joe and the team as we know what they’re capable of and we see them actively listening to their community. Our relationship is built on a foundation of minimum publisher interference with maximum support where needed. We’ll help nurture and grow the community while Bulkhead can focus on crafting a fantastic FPS experience with Battalion 1944.
Bulkhead Interactive launched a new video explaining why Square Enix Collective is the ideal publisher for their game:
