Limbic Entertainment and 505 Games Announce Partnership

Veteran Developer and Indie Publisher Will Team Up on Unannounced Survival FPS

CALABASAS, Calif. – Sept. 18, 2017 – 505 Games, a subsidiary of Digital Bros. S.p.A., has entered a partnership with industry veterans Limbic Entertainment, a development studio best known for its work on the Might & Magic® franchise in cooperation with Ubisoft and their current on Tropico 6 with Kalypso. 505 has acquired the worldwide publishing and marketing rights to Limbic Entertainment’s next title, an unannounced online survival sandbox game.

The partnership with Limbic Entertainment follows another recently announced 505 publishing deal with Paul Neurath and Warren Spector’s OtherSide Entertainment on Underworld Ascendant, the next-generation sequel to the landmark Underworld franchise.

“We are always on the lookout for new development partners who bring something unique to our diverse and indie-focused portfolio, and Limbic Entertainment’s new project does exactly that,” said Tim Woodley, SVP of global brand and marketing, 505 Games. “The team at Limbic is pushing the limits of the online multiplayer survival genre, putting a fresh spin on an emergent game world and an innovative character progression, and we’re looking forward to having a part in bringing that to players around the world.”

Helmed by industry veterans Stephan Winter and Alexander Frey, Limbic Entertainment was founded in 2002, and together its team has developed more than 60 games, released in more than a dozen countries.

“Our team is excited to dive into creating a new IP, and we are especially happy with the creative freedom in our cooperation with 505 Games,” said Stephan Winter, CEO, Limbic Entertainment. “505 is making a name for itself as a great publishing partner, and we knew right away they were the right company to embark on this project with us, as we move to defy the current limitations of the survival genre. We think players will really respond to this game, and we’re looking forward to sharing more details soon.”

Limbic Entertainment is currently entering full production on its upcoming title by growing the project team to 40 developers and is currently accepting resumes for professionals interested in working on this project.

Tropico 6 Announcement

Welcome to your own paradise:

This is TROPICO 6.

We, Limbic Entertainment, are very proud to announce that we are developing the 6th entry of Kalypso Media’s renown franchise TROPICO. Together, we build on the traditional foundation of the highly successful, 15-years-old series, and evolve it to the next stage by adding our unique flavour. Once again, the players can prove themselves as dictators and shape the fate of their nation through distinctive eras – but this time, thanks to the power of Unreal Engine 4 and our proficiency, TROPICO 6 will be bigger, better and more beautiful than ever.

For the first time in the series, we provide El Presidente with whole archipelagos – groups of multiple islands – to build his regime on and broaden his ambit. With an extensive infrastructure and over 150 unique buildings, ruling over TROPICO will be a diverse, challenging and fun experience. Additionally, players can prove their superiority over the other nations of the world by stealing their beloved landmarks and assimilate them into their tropical panorama.

El Presidente promised his subjects public transportation, and so we delivered: Tailored to El Presidentes needs (and player feedback), dictators-to-be can now connect their islands with bridges, construct tunnels and transport their citizens and tourists in taxis, busses and aerial cable cars. Of course, there’ll be also some prestigious vehicles reserved for El Presidente himself.

One of El Presidentes tried and true wisdoms reads: “There’s no place like home”. Therefore, we proudly announce a fully customizable palace that can be shaped to the players gusto. Thus, the player can give even more convincing election-speeches from their palaces balconies and make promises that they can’t possibly keep.

El Presidente will be back in 2018 on PC, Linux, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for upcoming content and more innovations on our official social media channels:
