Spanish developer Tequila Works has reacquired the rights to its cel-shaded adventure title, Rime, from Sony.
The studio broke the news on Twitter, telling followers it's "working hard to realize its aspirations" for the title.
Rime was originally revealed as a PlayStation 4 exclusive at Gamescom 2013, catching the eye thanks to its compelling visuals and curious narrative, which drew comparisons with critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer, Ico.
Speaking to Polygon, a Sony representative confirmed the news, explaining that "SCE is no longer proprietary of the IP, nor the publisher of the game."
The exact future of the game is now up in the air, although it's possible that Tequlia could release Rime on multiple platforms.
We've reached out to the studio for more information.
