Today SEGA Europe has announced a new publishing partnership with Surrey (UK) based developer, Two Point Studios. You may not have heard of the studio – as it was only established in 2016 and, as far as I’m aware, is yet to release any games – however you should hopefully recognise some of the lead team members’ gaming heritage.
Headed up by Gary Carr and Lionhead Studios co-founder, Mark Webley, these two industry veterans have worked on some big (and now classic) titles, such as: Theme Park, Black & White, Theme Hospital and Fable.
SEGA Europe has confirmed that the they will be working with Two Point Studios on a brand new title. So it sounds like the guys and gals at Two Point Studios have shown SEGA something impressive enough to warrant their interest. At SEGA Nerds, we are very interested to find out what it might be!
