The video game industry is in constant motion, and it is common to see studios and companies become part of other structures, and the same with IP. Today we have known that 505 Games, editor of Death Stranding, has bought the rights to Ghostrunner, the title of One More Level.
If you remember, Ghostrunner is a frenetic action game that was released on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, from the hand of developer One More Level and distributor All In Games. While 505 Games had a small stake in the distribution of the game, the license did not belong to them … until today.
Ghostrunner had very good receptions among the public, and also obtained the commercial recognition necessary to take off. The title managed to overcome the barrier of 500,000 units sold between all platforms, something that has caught the attention of 505 Games.
As a consequence, 505 Games has announced that acquires Ghostrunner license, as well as your rights for future updates or sequels, for the sum of 5 million dollars. Also, All In Games you will receive a percentage for sales of the game and its future contents.
”Ghostrunner quickly turned out to be a great success, which convinced 505 Games to come up with a great deal, one of those hard-to-refuse offers” said All In Games CEO Piotr Zygadlo.
The publisher 505 Games already wanted to get the rights to Ghostrunner at the time, even months before it went on sale, but the offers presented did not attract the attention of All In Games, which was finally the one who published the game developed by One More Level.
In case you do not know it, it is an aesthetic action title cyberpunk, where we have to dismember the enemies, run at full speed and overcome all kinds of obstacles, while we discover the enigma that haunts humanity (The Master of Keys), which resides in El Arquitecto, a huge tower.
Ghostrunner is available in PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, although there are plans to bring the game to the next generation consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, this time from the hand of 505 Games.
