Take-Two Ends Publishing Deal With People Can Fly For New Action-Adventure IP

People Can Fly are working on a new Triple A game

About two years ago the developer of Outriders and bullet storm, People Can Fly, had signed an agreement with Take-Two Interactive in which a new action-adventure IP would be published. It appears, however, that there have been significant developments behind the scenes.

It has been announced that Take-Two Interactive has terminated its publishing agreement with People Can Fly. People Can Fly says that while terms for settlement of advance payments and the like have yet to be agreed, Take-Two has not exercised its option to retain ownership of the intellectual property, meaning the Polish developer retains ownership. of the project and remains completely in charge of its production.

The new IP, which has been in development for two years under the codename Project Daggerwill remain in development. People Can Fly confirms that the title is still in pre-production, and the current plan is to self-publish when it’s ready for release.

“I guess we’ll part ways on good terms, and I see no reason why we can’t work with Take-Two on some other project in the future,” says CEO Sebastian Wojciechowski. “We strongly believe in the potential of the Dagger Project and are now committed to continuing its development within our self-publishing portfolio. The game is still in pre-production – our team is now focusing on closing the combat and gameplay loops and migrating from EU4 to EU5. I am aware that this decision will add investment to us, but self-publishing is part of our strategy. Of course, we don’t rule out working with a new publisher if this creates a compelling business opportunity.”

People Can Fly is also currently working on a new unannounced game in collaboration with Square Enix, who was also the publisher of Outriders.
