Twin Mirror has been delayed until 2020 and will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC for a period of 12 months after release, developer DONTNOD recently confirmed.
The title, a mixture of Twin Peaks zaniness with a dash of Hannibal thrown in for good measure, has been “reschedule[d]… for 2020, boosted by the transmedia expertise of a co-producer Shibuya Productions,” DONTNOD advised in a press release.
Bandai Namco will still publish the title, though DONTNOD has confirmed that it has acquired the rights to the IP. Also confirmed recently was the 12-month exclusivity arrangement on PC via the Epic Games Store.
“In line with our development strategy and thanks to our partnership with Epic Games, DONTNOD now majority holds an additional key asset,” Oskar Guilbert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DONTNOD, said. “We are delighted to partner with Epic Games and present Twin Mirror to the vast gamer community on its Epic Games store. The conditions of this partnership along with the support of Shibuya Productions reinforce the game’s potential.
“This strategic operation demonstrates our ability to leverage new market trends in our favor. The video game industry is currently undergoing major transformation and now offers a major competitive advantage to content creators such as DONTNOD.”
