Remedy Entertainment and Tencent have partnered for a new game codenamed Vanguard. The game will be a free-to-play, multiplayer, co-operative shooter. Remedy will develop and publish the game worldwide, except in select markets in Asia. Tencent will take up localization and publishing duties in those markets.
Part of the deal licenses Tencent worldwide rights to develop and publish mobile versions of the game. Tencent is the publisher for a number of mobile shooters, including PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile.
“Vanguard marks Remedy’s first entry into the Games-as-a-Service business model, run by our top team of free-to-play experts. We are creating something new and exciting for cooperative multiplayer space, on top of Remedy’s powers. Expanding our capabilities to meet publishing obligations is the next step in our company’s development, “writes Taro Virtala,” Remedy Boss. ” Vanguard is a global opportunity and can support Tencent Remedy internationally and lead operations in Asia and the mobile market. “
Vanguard is another upcoming game announced by Remedy. Remedy earlier this month announced Alan Wake 2 at the 2021 Game Awards. According to the press release, the concept of vanguard development is still deep in the evidence of the phase. No release date information.
