Developer Q-Games has announced it has purchased back the rights to PS4 sandbox adventure The Tomorrow Children.
The studio confirmed it had bought back the IP from Sony Interactive Entertainment on its website. The world-building sandbox originally launched in October 2016, but shuttered just over a year later. SIE’s now-defunct Japan Studio also helped out with development duties on the free-to-play title.
Q-Games’ founder and director Dylan Cuthbert had the following to say. “I’d like to thank first and foremost the fans of The Tomorrow Children, without whom, I would never have had the confidence to keep pursuing this deal. Our fans are some of the most amazing gamers out there, and every day for the past four years they have kept the dream alive. I think the happiest thing about this decision is imagining the enjoyment those fans will feel as they re-enter the crazy post-apocalyptic neo-soviet world of The Tomorrow Children.”
“Secondly I’d like to thank Sony Interactive Entertainment for also working with me to have the IP returned to Q-Games. It has taken a concerted effort by all of us to get to this ultimate step, and I’m full of gratitude to everyone involved in the process.”
Cuthbert also confirmed that he and Q-Games intend to revive the game in the future. “I am now tweaking and re-working parts of the game every week, and I hope everyone follows along and gets involved in this process. We plan to make quite a few changes for the better, and give The Tomorrow Children the re-launch it deserves!”
