Specifically, Marchewka added that “we believe in a flexible and open publishing philosophy, based on respect for the players,” with Techland aiming to “encourage and financially support developers through investing in bold, unconventional games with great entertainment value.”
As part of its statement, Techland added that the studio’s goal as a publisher is to “release 2 major multiplatform titles, and 4 in digital distribution each year,” with the company “already scanning the market for opportunities” and the first title that will be published by the company to be announced “soon.”
