We’re so excited to work on a game we love and bring it to additional platforms with such a like-minded publishing partner,” said Jeff Pobst, project lead for DG2.
“Our goal at 505 is to be a publishing partner that lets studios retain their creative independence and that is exactly how we intend to partner with Hidden Path in order to bring DG2 to market,” said Ian Howe, president, 505 Games. “Hidden Path is the perfect partner; they are experienced industry veterans developing a top-quality tower defense game that we both cannot wait to get into gamers’ hands.”
Defense Grid 2, DG2, is the highly-anticipated sequel to Hidden Path Entertainment’s 2008 Defense Grid: The Awakening.
