Czech developer Warhorse Studios has today announced that it has joined publisher Koch Media under the newly created Prime Matter label and that its first call to action is the release of its popular and acclaimed medieval RPG Kingdom Come Deliverance for Nintendo Switch with the help of Sabre Interactive. The game first launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC back in 2018 and has now sold close to 4 million units since.
“We have come a long way from founding Warhorse Studios in 2011 to the successful release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance in 2018,” said Tobias Stolz-Zwilling, PR manager at Warhorse Studios in a press release sent to Twinfinite. “As Koch Media supported us at the start, we are now happy to return the favor and support the newly established Prime Matter label as one of its legacy partners.”
“It is amazing to see how much involvement and influence gamers worldwide can have on game development. The overwhelming feedback and fan reaction made us reconsider our opportunities and made us sit down with Sabre Interactive, who is the perfect candidate for this ambitious undertaking.”
Mario Gerhold, global brand and marketing director at Koch Media adds that “Warhorse Studios quickly established themselves as a valuable addition to the Koch Media family. Adding Warhorse Studios to our new premium label not only adds promising future titles but also a lot of talent and experience.”
Twinfinite reviewed Kingdom Come Deliverance when it launched on PS4 and was thoroughly impressed by the scope and scale of its design, though its technical performance was somewhat shaky. It will be interesting to see how the graphical fidelity and overall performance runs on Switch hardware given that it is significantly less powerful.
