Publisher Focus Home Interactive has revealed that they have no plans in creating any DLC for their much-anticipated single-player, RPG, Vampyr.
Vampyr – Launching Next Year!
Cédric Lagarrigue, President of Focus Home Interactive, shared the company’s stance regarding DLCs for their upcoming game in a recent talk conducted by MCVUK. Lagarrigue spoke about Vampyr‘s focal point being its complete single-player experience, and that DLCs would make for a fragmented one.
“This is a purely solo experience; we did not plan DLC” said Lagarrigue
Should they feel that more content would be needed, they would rather opt for a full sequel; if the game does well in its sales. The company forecasts that Vampyr would be profitable at 500K copies sold, and a success with a million units sold.
“We would prefer, if the reception of the game justifies it, to think about a sequel.” Lagarrigue states ” it will be considered a success when around a million copies are sold, but it will only need half of that to be profitable”
While not having a massive budget like that of big Triple-A games, Vampyr‘s budget still dwarfs that of an independent studio, making it sit somewhere between a large blockbuster title and an indie release. The president is confident that with the combination of its reasonably sized budget and strong premise, reaching those milestones is feasible.
“Vampyr benefits from strong recognition and expectations” says Lagarrigue “It has everything it needs to become a nice surprise on the market.”
Vampyr puts players in the shoes of Dr. Jonathan Reid, an unfortunate victim of vampirism. Who, with newfound abilities must find a cure to the flu-ravaged citizens of the city. But, as a Vampyr, you are cursed to feed on those you vowed to heal.
Vampyr was initially slated to launch this month, but was delayed due to technical setbacks and will instead come out early next year. To learn more about this upcoming single-player RPG, you can check out our preview on the game.
Vampyr is planned for a release in Spring 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam.
