Kingdom Come Delivers the Deep Silver

So, because Koch Media clearly aren’t a huge enough part of the video game world already, what with snapping up huge swathes of THQ into the Deep Silver family, now they’re taking on responsibility for publishing the massively successful crowdfunding darling Kingdom Come: Deliverance as well. Because of course they are. That’s pretty much all there is too it actually.

Deep Silver have already demonstrated a clear hands off approach to the development side of games, even with the studios they now own. When they say publishing, they mean precisely that. Basically this means that any and all resources Warhorse now have at their disposal will be funnelled into making the game exactly the way they want to, and Deep Silver will throw even more money at them to produce and distribute both digital and physical copies of the game.

In short, it’s a win/win scenario.

Official Press Release

Munich / Praha, September 29 – Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver, the publishing label of Koch Media, are happy to announce their collaboration to publish the medieval role playing game Kingdom Come: Deliverance. With this exclusive co-publishing deal, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is reaching the next important milestone to distribute the game, with the release date remaining in 2017.
