Dontnod Entertainment CEO Dismisses Bankruptcy Rumors, In “Close Negotiations” For their Next Game
Dontnod Entertainment, developers of last year’s science-fiction action game, Remember Me, have dismissed recent rumors that the company had entered bankruptcy. The developer’s CEO spoke directly with reporters, assuring them of the company’s continued success following the sales of Remember Me.
“Dontnod is not in bankruptcy…we are in something called in France ‘judicial reorganisation’ which allows us to re-adapt our production pipeline to the new situation,” Oskar Guilbert told GamesIndustry International, “We started new projects and those new projects need some investment and we decided to resize the company in order to match these new needs. That’s why we needed judicial reorganisation.”
Mr. Guilbert cited Remember Me‘s recent success, specifically in Europe, where it is the second-most downloaded game. He also mentioned that the developer does indeed have a bright future ahead of them, if things work out, as they are, “in close negotiations with one big partner; I cannot of course announce the name and say that but we are in very close negotiations for our next project with one of the top publishers.”
Remember Me was published by Capcom for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on June 4th, 2013. You can read our review of the game here.
