Remedy Entertainment, the developer behind Quantum Break and Max Payne, have announced a new partnership with South Korean developer Smilegate, to work on the campaign for its upcoming multiplayer shooter, CrossFire 2.
Yep, the popular Korean free-to-play shooter, CrossFire 2, will be getting a campaign from the legendary studio Remedy Entertainment. The game’s first title, CrossFire, was a huge hit in Southeast Asia, becoming the world’s top-grossing online game in 2014 bringing in a little over a billion dollars in sales.
The game, which many have compared to Counter Strike, offered various objective based competitive modes for upto 16 players. The game also had an overarching story with two rival factions competing for a new world order. One team is a private military company with some morals, the other is a terrorist organisation that has zero morals.
So, how exactly are Remedy set to take this fairly bland good vs. evil story and make something legendary out of it?
“The whole team here at Remedy is incredibly excited to be an key partner in developing the future of the CrossFire franchise,” the studio wrote in an announcement. “Smilegate specifically chose Remedy to bring our unique blend of storytelling, memorable characters and inventive gameplay to CrossFire’s global audience.”
This isn’t the first time a western studio has partnered with Smilegate, as earlier this year, Payday 2 developer Starbreeze Studios also revealed a partnership to allow them to bring CrossFire to the west, as well as publish Starbreeze titles in Asian markets.
