March 27, 2024

Yellow Brick Games, a new independent studio founded by AAA industry veterans Thomas Giroux, Jeff Skalski, Mike Laidlaw and Frédéric St-Laurent B. just announced its next move; they will fully transition to self-publishing. Their first title, a fantasy Action-Adventure game crafted over four years by a team of 68, will be releasing in 2025.

After years of quietly working on the project, the team shared a short teaser of the game across their social media platforms this morning. The game will be fully unveiled on April 2nd with an IGN First takeover scheduled for the entire month of April, providing many more details into this anticipated new title.

"We are thrilled to share this exciting news with our community. Self-publishing is a leap of faith, especially in the current turbulent industry climate, but it’s also an opportunity to take our destiny into our own hands and reach out directly to players and the wider gaming community during this release. Our team has been hard at work for years, and we can’t wait to showcase our debut project to the world. It’s a huge milestone for us, and we see it as just the first step on what we hope will be a long and rewarding journey for the company, charting our own path, and growing our talents and products brick by brick." - Mike Laidlaw, Chief Creative Officer at Yellow Brick Games.

The studio remains well-positioned to deliver the cutting-edge and refined independent gaming experience they committed to back in 2020.

"We see this change in a very positive light as we now fully control our studios' ambitions, and the scope of our game remains unchanged. The player experience will always be our primary indicator of success. Showing the world our project and building an authentic bond with our community is the next exciting step in our journey!" - Thomas Giroux, Co-founder and CEO at Yellow Brick Games.
