The annual revenue of the studio grew by 63%, amounting to 34.25 million dollars. Operating profit – 7.05 million. Now the company employs 248 people – over the year the number has grown by 24%.
Remedy is currently working on five projects:
two plot additions for Control
CrossFire X for Xbox One
Vanguard (working title).
Vanguard – This is a multiplayer project with a service model, thanks to which Remedy expects to receive stable long-term profit. At the same time, Vanguard was the only studio game that was not created on the proprietary Northlight engine.
The fourth and fifth projects are just getting ready to enter the pre-production stage.
A team of 40 people is working on the development of Northlight, which has already implemented support for NVIDIA RTX and PlayStation 4, and is now adding network capabilities and is preparing to launch next-generation consoles.
