Jan Klose, CEO & Co-Owner of Deck13 talked about indie developers:
Deck13 invites developers to get in touch if they would like to give their project some extra support. We want to strike a fair deal with all our partners. We want to be seen as supporters and friends, as game enthusiasts, and not as a traditional publisher.
Florian Stadlbauer, CEO and Owner, stated:
Setting up Deck13 Games is a fundamental change within the company. Now we can finally provide great games directly to the gamers as we always envisioned it. Due to the awesome line up we are absolutely convinced that this strategy will push Deck13 a huge step ahead.
E3 2015 would be the perfect time to announce the four titles, which makes the Microsoft press conference seem even more exciting. With so many surprises announcements incoming as well as some gameplay demonstrations for already announced titles, it's certainly a pretty good time to be an Xbox fan.
It would be interesting to see whether any of Deck 13's tiles make it to the PC, as cross-play and cross-development is promised from Microsoft.
Lords of the Fallen was a pretty good title, and an exclusive developing environment and Microsoft resources would definitely allow the developer to achieve even better results. Deck 13 could have some very interesting titles in store for Xbox One owners.
