Sydney (Australia), January 17, 2020 – Hunt: Showdown is getting a new publisher! Today Crytek announced that Koch Media will act as Hunt: Showdown’s publisher on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One moving forward. Koch Media is responsible for both the global retail and digital releases of the game on these platforms. The extended partnership follows Koch Media’s successful retail release of Hunt: Showdown for PC in 2019. Crytek will continue to develop Hunt: Showdown, and act as publisher for the PC version on Steam. The two companies will be working together closely to deliver the best possible gaming experience across all platforms.

 

Alongside this news, Crytek and Koch Media revealed that Hunt: Showdown will be available on PlayStation®4 on February 18 2020.

 

“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,” said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. “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.”

 

“Hunt: Showdown is a unique game, that all of us here at Koch Media who already supported the PC retail release have a lot of fun playing,” added Koch Media CEO, Dr. Klemens Kundratitz. “The feedback we see from the PC community and the high quality standards of the game underline our confidence in the global release on PS4 and Xbox.”

 

In the next year, players can expect even more content to be added to Hunt: Showdown via the regular updates that the game has delivered throughout its lifespan. Update 1.2 is slated to bring random teams of three, an advanced tutorial, new Legendary Hunters, and new equipment and weapons across the board. Players can also expect server-side performance improvements, client CPU performance fixes, and a number of other general bug fixes.

 

Looking beyond Update 1.2, Hunt: Showdown will see even bigger updates arriving, including cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation, a Solo PvE mode, live-events, outfit customisation, and a new map.
