Focus Home Interactive has announced that it will be rebranding and that going forward all games the publisher works on will be published under the name Focus Entertainment instead. The publisher announced the news earlier today on its official website, claiming that the rebrand has been done in an attempt to market Focus as more of a global publisher.
"From now on, the Focus Entertainment brand covers all of Focus' activities, with the term Entertainment being representative of the desire to diversify its games, products, services and revenue streams. Entertainment also emphasizes the ambition to offer players around the world unique experiences, supported by an editorial policy that stands out thanks to innovative concepts, inventive gameplay and original worlds that transcend the boundaries of video games."
Focus Entertainment has a number of promising franchises in its locker and has recently acquired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge publisher Dometu to add to its already swelling list of developers. Another high profile developer owned by Focus is The Surge 2 developer Deck 13, and the publisher regularly partners with A Plague Tale: Innocence developer Asobo Studio.
As for the games in Focus Entertainment's near future, World War Z: Aftermath is set to release on September 21 which contains all the content from the Game of the Year edition – including full episodes in New York, Moscow, Marseille, Jerusalem, and Tokyo – as well as two new episodes in Vatican City and Kamchatka. World War Z: Aftermath will be available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
Focus Entertainment also has the highly-anticipated A Plague Tale: Requiem launching next year as well. While there isn't a confirmed release date just yet, the game is still expected to launch at some point in 2022 for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch via cloud streaming. Xbox users will be pleased to know that the game will also be available on Xbox Game Pass on the day of release.
