STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (April 26, 2019) – Starbreeze and Mohawk Games have mutually agreed to sell back the publishing rights to Mohawk for “10 Crowns”. Starbreeze expects to be fully reimbursed for costs the company has had in connection with development of the game.
Starbreeze acquired the publishing rights for “10 Crowns” in 2018 and has since then partly financed the development of the game. The title owner Mohawk Games and Starbreeze have now reached an agreement whereby Starbreeze returns the publishing rights for the game to Mohawk and will be able to recoup the development costs at a premium.
“As we work through our reorganization it also means that we will need to look at each and every opportunity presented and make some hard decisions which are the right for the situation we are in. Mohawk has made good progress on the project so far and we’ll be excited to see the product realized when the time comes for its release”, said Mikael Nermark, acting CEO Starbreeze AB.
As previously announced, Starbreeze will focus on its core business of games development and publishing. Starbreeze holds publishing rights for “Psychonauts 2”.
