It's getting exciting to be a fan of Don't Nod, as the French studio will be releasing 8 games between 2023 and 2025. That's a very decent output, especially when you consider that from 2008 until now, Don't Nod has released 7 games. Basically, Don't Nod is going from a game every two years to over two a year. Not too shabby, eh?
As for future Don't Nod games, the company currently has a €46.1 ($44.69) million "robust cash position", which definitely doesn't sound like a bad thing for a studio that wants to pump out a lot of games over the next 3 years. Staff costs have accordingly shot up as well, moving up 31% during the first half of 2022 to €11.3 ($11.73) million compared to the €9.2 ($8.92) million that it required in the first half of 2021. The increase is due to the company's recruitment drive for "six in-house production pipelines".
Of the 8 original games coming from the company, you can expect to see five self-published games. As for the three other games, one title is being made as a co-production with Focus Entertainment, with the other two developed by external studios Tolima and Tiny Bull.
In case you don't know, Don't Nod is an independent French studio that develops and publishes games. You might recognize some of its most famous efforts, which include Vampyr, the Life is Strange series, and Tell Me Why. Don't Nod has also published two games so far, with the first being its self-published effort Twin Mirror and the second being PortaPlay's World War II narrative RPG Gerda: A Flame In Winter.
Speaking of Gerda, Don't Nod has also just announced that it's partnering up with charity War Child for a new edition of the game. It's called Gerda: A Flame in Winter – War Child Charity Digital Edition, and it will include the game, the soundtrack, and 6 exclusive digital paintings. 20% of the proceeds from the new version will go directly to War Child, which brings awareness to the problems young girls and women face in war zones around the world. If you're looking to support a good cause and you haven't checked out Gerda yet, now's the time to do so.
