The Plague is a new IP coming from the studio that has worked on games such as Quantum Break, Recore, and The Crew. Asobo Studios is currently working on the action adventure game and is finishing pre-production as we speak. Little is known about the game, but more is to follow soon, but we do have some concept art below:

 

To add some sugar on this delicious cereal, Asobos Studios have teamed up with Focus Home Interactive on the project. Focus Home Interactive has its own impressive catalog of games including Styx, Farming Simulator 17 and Blood Bowl. This collaboration seems like a good fit, and I am not the only one who agrees.

“Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio,” says Sebastian Wloch, CEO of Asobo. 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.”

With so many solid games under their belts, this collaboration can only mean good things for The Plague. The Plague will be available for PC and console, and will be unveiled at this year’s What’s Next de Focus, a showcasing event for all the projects currently in production at Focus Home, early this February.
