Newly-established software publisher Gamecock has told our sister site, Eurogamer.net, that it doesn't consider itself to be in competition with any other publishers.
CEO Mike Wilson described the company as "an independent publisher that's going to help creative people make games", adding, "We don't see ourselves as being in competition with EA - or, indeed, with any other publisher.
"Our approach won't be right for everyone - and not everyone will be right for our approach. We've already signed a great crop of studios for our first wave and we don't envisage any problems adding to the list."
As announced last week, Gamecock has been established by former G.O.D. executives keen to shift the focus away from big budgets and licensed sequels.
The company will also be exploring opportunities in the field of digital distribution. According to Wilson, "We will definitely be going digital. It's too early for us to say which route we'll take, but we love that whole 'new frontier' that's opening up in front of us."
