Brave Lamb Studio, part of the Movie Games Group, and a premium indie game developer, will transfer the game Field Hospital to the Xbox Series X console. Microsoft Corporation has accepted the game in the submissions process for next-generation consoles signed with the Xbox brand. On this basis, Field Hospital has been accepted as one of the games that can be developed for the Xbox platform, and Brave Lamb Studio has received the status of a formal developer of the Xbox program.
The company has signed two agreements with Microsoft: a developer agreement that gives the Studio access to the tools and technologies of Microsoft’s latest generation of consoles that guarantees Field Hospital’s presence on the official Xbox store platform.
– ‘The agreements signed with Microsoft officially seal the plans for the release of the Field Hospital game, not only on PC, but also on next-generation Xbox Series consoles. Our game will provide players with a range of experiences and sensations very rarely found in popular productions today. Its potential is huge, so we are happy that also owners of Xbox Series consoles will be able to feel the atmosphere of a hospital from the time of the Great War. In addition, we are in negotiations with Microsoft related to marketing support for the title, but at this stage it is too early to talk about details,’ comments Michal Dziwniel, chief producer of Brave Lamb Studio.
As part of the gameplay, the player will manage a frontline field hospital during World War I. Among other things, the player will be tasked with the responsibility of making difficult moral decisions on which the life and death of individual soldiers will depend, maintaining the defense of the field hospital and building up its structure, while struggling to obtain resources. This will be the first next-gen production in the Studio’s portfolio, which in the future plans to focus on games based on a complex narrative layer in realities not previously exploited in computer games.
– ‘The Brave Lamb Studio team is highly competent in the production of premium indie games. This prompted us to update the concept of developing console versions in the group. Usually, one of the Subsidiaries in MG is in charge of making ports for console platforms. In the case of Brave Lamb Studio, we decided to build these competencies inside the team.’ – comments Mateusz Wczesniak, CEO of Movie Games.
According to the development schedule, the game is expected to be released for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series consoles in Q4 2022. The developers estimate that the game will reach sales of several hundred thousand units in the first 24 months after its release. In addition to work on the game, the Company is also preparing for the process of listing shares on the WSE.
Brave Lamb Studio is a team consisting of 17 top gamedev professionals, previously working for companies such as Techland, CD Projekt, T-Bull and People Can Fly, among others. The main producer of the game is Michal Dziwniel, working in the game industry since 2010 in production and design positions. Members of the studio had the opportunity to co-create such games as Dying Light 2, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, Outriders, and Pure Farming 2018.
