Crytek has named Koch Media as the console publisher for Hunt: Showdown and confirmed the game’s PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release date.
Online multi-player bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One on February 18, 2020. Crytek has also confirmed that Koch Media will act as publisher for the retail and digital console release. Crytek remains publisher for the PC version.
Speaking about game, Koch Media CEO, Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, says:
“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. 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.”
Crytek CEO, Avni Yerli, adds:
“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. 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.”
As for that new content, Crytek says it will continue soon with update 1.2. The update adds random teams of three, a new advanced tutorial, some new Legendary Hunters, and the usual slew of equipment and weapons. Server-side performance improvements are also incoming, along with client CPU performance fixes.
In time, cross-play between Xbox One and PlayStation will also be added, plus a Solo PvE mode, live-events, outfit customisation, and a new boss to defeat.
