Dontnod Entertainment — the developer for the Capcom-published action game — has entered judicial reorganisation. The timing’s a bit weird, as Remember Me has just been announced as one of the games that PlayStation Plus members in the US will get for free in February.
Update: In an interview with GameIndustry International, Dontnod CEO Oskar Guilbert says that “There is no bankruptcy, Dontnod is not in bankruptcy.” Guilbert goes on to explain that the studio’s finances are being retooled under judicial supervision:
“We are in something called in France ‘judicial reorganisation’ which allows us to re-adapt our production pipeline to the new situation. Because as you know we finished a game called Remember Me for Capcom which was out in June 2013, last year. This game, I think it’s important to mention, is number two in terms of downloads on PlayStation Plus in Europe, so it’s a big success on the digital side at least.”
“We started new projects and those new projects need some investment and we decided to resize the company in order to match these new needs. That’s why we needed judicial reorganisation.
