Playlogic Granted Publisher Status By SCEA

Dutch publisher and developer Playlogic has announced that SCEA has granted the company full publishing rights in the U.S. for the PlayStation 2 and PSP formats, allowing it to publish forthcoming titles such as Obscure II under its own label.
Officials from Dutch publisher and developer Playlogic have announced that Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has granted the company full publishing rights in the U.S. for the PlayStation 2 and PSP formats. Currently Playlogic titles such as Obscure and Gene Troopers are published in the U.S. by a range of third party companies, including DreamCatcher Interactive and SouthPeak. The new publisher status will allow Playlogic to publish forthcoming titles such as Obscure II, Officers and Age of Pirates: Captain Blood under its own label. In August, Playlogic announced its second quarter financial results, showing sales up 175 percent to $1.1 million despite only seeing the PSP's Xyanide Resurrection and PC's Evil Days of Luckless John released in the quarter. Four games expected to be released in the third and fourth quarters, including Xyanide Resurrection for PS2 and Obscure II for PC, PS2 and Wii. Chief technical officer Dominique Morel commented: "With these PlayStation 2 and PSP system publisher licenses, Playlogic is fulfilling another step of its expansion plan. These licenses will allow Playlogic and its production team to directly work together with Sony in the U.S. as well.” “This means better quality for our games, better adjustments for our U.S. end-users and the market, and last but not least, a better time-to-market. I am very happy to be able to bring our titles to the U.S. territory and its huge installed base for these platforms,” he added.
