Development on the action RPG will carry on without Platinum Games.
Platinum Games has announced that its contract with Cygames has ended, and it will no longer be working on the development of Granblue Fantasy: Relink.
“While we, PlatinumGames, have been working with Cygames in co-development of the upcoming console game Granblue Fantasy: Relink, we officially announce our contract on the project has come to an end,” read the blog update. “Development will still continue, but be handled solely by Cygames’ internal development team.”
Granblue Fantasy: Relink was announced at TGS 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PSVR. Featuring characters from the original game, the title was a collaborative project between Cygames and Platinum Games.
The studios involvement made the game one to watch, with its specialization in fast-paced action games, like Bayonetta, and Nier: Automata.
It’s not clear why the contract wasn’t renewed, but Platinum Games has urged fans continue to support the game.
