Koch Media and Warhorse Studios are happy to announce the joining of Warhorse Studios to the newly created Prime Matter label of Koch Media. The successful Czech game developer - with its critically acclaimed medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance - sold nearly 4 million copies on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One to date and is stepping into the new Prime Matter label as an established Legacy Studio of Koch Media.
“We have gone a long way from founding Warhorse Studios in 2011 to the successful release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance in 2018 by Koch Media. And as Koch Media supported us at that time, we are now happy to return it back and support newly established label Prime Matter by joining it”, said Tobias Stolz-Zwilling, PR Manager at Warhorse Studios
“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”, says Mario Gerhold, Global Brand And Marketing Director at Koch Media.
Born out of a “happy mistake”, as one could call it, Warhorse Studios and Koch Media also announce the release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance on the Nintendo Switch. At the end of 2020, the Kingdom Come: Deliverance Royal Edition was announced on the PlayStation 4 in Japan. Due to a clerical error, the game was also listed for the Nintendo Switch as well, which by that time was not in the plans. The ‘mistake’ was fixed right away, but the information spread. However, the overwhelming feedback was eye-opening and an integral part of the decision-making later. Sabre Interactive, also a legacy studio of Koch Media, has proven on multiple occasions that they are the right partners for this endeavor to make the unthinkable, thinkable.
“It is amazing to see how much involvement and influence gamers worldwide can have on game development. Their overwhelming feedback and fan reactions made us reconsider our opportunities and made us sit together with Sabre Interactive, who is the perfect candidate for this ambitious undertaking”, says Tobias Stolz-Zwilling, PR Manager at Warhorse Studios.
