Our publishing partnership with Koch Media follows their successful retail release of Hunt: Showdown for PC in 2019. We will continue to develop Hunt: Showdown, as before, and act as publisher for the PC version on Steam. We will be working together closely with Koch to deliver the best game we possibly can.
Alongside this news, we revealed in a press release today. that Hunt: Showdown will be available on PlayStation® 4 and physically on Xbox One on February 18 2020. All of the PS4 players who have been asking for more information on this one: today is your day.
Our CEO, Avni Yerli, had this to say of the partnership with Koch: “With Koch handling the publishing side of things, our development team can put all of their focus on continuing to develop and optimize Hunt across platforms, together with our community. While we focus on development, Koch will apply their immense digital and retail publishing expertise to the title, supporting the game's continued growth. We can't wait to see what PlayStation players think of the game, and to continue to bring new content to all our players in the coming year."
In the next year, you can expect even more content to be added to the game, and a lot of things you've been asking us for are on the way! Very soon, Update 1.2 will bring us random teams of three, an advanced tutorial, new Legendary Hunters, and new equipment and weapons across the board. You can also expect server-side performance improvements, client CPU performance fixes, and a number of other general bug fixes with the 1.2 Update.
Meanwhile, looking beyond Update 1.2, Hunt will see even bigger updates arriving, including cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation, a Solo PvE mode, live-event, outfit customization, and a new map.
