Bigben announced that though Cyanide Studio will continue to work on Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, they will be publishing and distributing the game that has been in development for nearly two years. Announced back in January 2017 by Paradox Interactive and Focus Home Interactive, the first Werewolf: the Apocalypse action-RPG is still on track and in development. Players will control Cahal, a banished werewolf, who is forced to return to the aid of his endangered clan and master the Rage bubbling within him. On his bloody quest for redemption, Cahal will play a pivotal role in the Great War of the Garou against Pentex, a powerful corporation whose activities are upsetting the balance of nature.
“We are thrilled to have reached this agreement which considers, in an equitable way, the different parties’ investments. This will allow Cyanide to keep the ball rolling on the game’s development and to give its numerous fans a really unique experience, in a universe that gamers are very fond of,” declared Alain Falc, Bigben’s CEO.
“The intense action and desperate supernatural danger of Werewolf is a perfect fit for BigBen,” said Shams Jorjani, VP Business Development at Paradox Interactive, and interim manager at White Wolf. “And this is happening at the best time, because of our renewed focus on brand management and licensing. This allows us to give our partners exactly what they need to develop amazing customer experiences in their licensed products. Video games always have been a key pillar to White Wolf’s brand strategy: they’re an incredibly powerful medium for great World of Darkness stories! So, we are looking forward very much to this partnership, and to many others, in the months and years ahead.”
