Publisher 505 Games has entered into an agreement with Ghostrunner 2 developer One More Level. The terms imply that the studio is committed to actively supporting the game for a year after its global launch.
- In a press release, 505 Games announced that it has allocated €590,000 for additional support for Ghostrunner 2.
- These funds will allow One More Level to create new gameplay and cosmetic content for the game, both paid and free.
- “We are glad that the publisher sees the possibilities of our team and the project to which we have devoted our hearts in recent years,” the studio’s head Szymon Bryła said in a statement.
- Announced in May, Ghostrunner 2 is expected to come out on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S later this year.
- The new deal between One More Level and 505 Games guarantees that players will be getting some DLCs for at least a year after release (although it is unclear how much additional content will be produced exactly).
Based in Kraków, Poland, One More Level was founded in 2014, with its debut project being side-scrolling zombie game Deadlings. The studio’s portfolio also includes 2D action title Warlocks vs Shadows and top-down shooter God’s Trigger.
However, One More Level is best known for its cyberpunk first-person action game Ghostrunner, which came out in October 2020 and received positive reviews from critics. It currently has over 38k user reviews on Steam, 92% of which are positive.
According to the latest financial report from Digital Bros (parent company of 505 Games), Ghostrunner has sold over 1 million units globally. So it is safe to assume that both 505 Games and One More Level expect the sequel to surpass this figure, with additional content support driving the long tail of sales.
