Game developer DC Studios has announced that it has signed a new development agreement with Konami, with a multi-format title set to follow on from the firms' recent collaboration on Tour de France Centenary Edition.
DC, which has offices in Glasgow, Scotland and Montreal, Canada, worked on the Tour de France title on the PlayStation 2 for Konami, marking the first time that the Japanese publisher had worked directly with a European developer.
Now a new multi-format title has been signed by Konami of Europe, which is set to release in Q4 2005 on PS2, PC and Game Boy Advance, and will be developed at DC's Montreal studio.
"DC Studios have proven themselves in the past to be very reliable, delivering for us quality product to budget and on time," enthused Konami of Europe's development manager Tony Bickley. "I had no hesitation in commissioning them to take on a new strategic title for us."
"We are very happy to once again be working with one of the most respected publishers in the world on a major project," according to DC Studios CEO Mark Greenshields. "It will be great to work once again with Tony and his team. I am sure that this game will be a great success for all of us."
