Focus Home Interactive announced today that they’ll be publishing Asobo Studio’s (Ratatouille, Fuel) action-adventure game The Plague. A release date wasn’t given, and the platforms are only listed as “consoles and PC.”

The Plague is currently finishing pre-production, but a first version of the game will be presented at Focus Home Interactive’s What’s Next de Focus event on February 1 and 2 in Paris. We’ll also learn more info about The Plague next month.

Asobo CEO Sebastian Wloch said:

Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio. For this ambitious project, we needed the full support of a strong and growing publisher. The Focus team, through their professionalism, enthusiasm and openness, have naturally established themselves as the ideal partners to bring the experience we wish to offer to players.

Focus Home President Cédric Lagarrigue added:

It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio. This new signature confirms our results and know-how on the support of talented independent studios such as Dontnod, Deck13, Giants Software, Cyanide, New World Interactive, and Larian on increasingly ambitious projects worldwide. There is a real upscaling of our catalog and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.

What’s Next de Focus will showcase games currently in production at Focus, so expect to see Vampyr, The Surge, Styx: Shards of Darkness, Call of Cthulhu, and more at the event.
