With all that pretext, the publisher then revealed the new name change, saying “From now on, the Focus Entertainment brand covers all of Focus’ activities, with the term Entertainment being representative of the desire to diversify its games, products, services and revenue streams. Entertainment also emphasizes the ambition to offer players around the world unique experiences, supported by an editorial policy that stands out thanks to innovative concepts, inventive gameplay and original worlds that transcend the boundaries of video games.” They continued, “The acquisition of studios such as Deck13 Interactive, StreumOn Studio, and more recently, Dotemu and its label The Arcade Crew, demonstrate Focus’ desire to integrate talents and studios with singular visions in our strong and ambitious Group, to promote value creation, anticipate new trends, and unique gameplay.”
With this new name change, it seems to suggest that Focus Entertainment is looking beyond the realm of video games and into further forms of entertainment. Some of its games such as A Plague Tale: innocence, offer interesting and emotional stories and while they benefit greatly from being told in video game form, would also translate well into other mediums. With the current resurgence of film and TV adaptations of video games, it would not be surprsing to see A Plague Tale be turned into a TV show sooner or later.
