Remedy Entertainment signs Tencent Partnership for Free-To-Play Gunner Vanguard.
Remedy Entertainment has agreed to collaborate with Tencent on a new project. Vanguard is a free-to-play, co-op shooter game that will be developed by these two companies. This news was made public in a Remedy Entertainment investor call.
This game’s title, which is still a codename, is not related to the Call of Duty latest entry. Remedy Entertainment, an international publisher of the title, will manage publishing and development in the West for the game. Tencent will publish and localize the game in these markets.

Vanguard will also become the first to enter the free-to play market for Remedy Entertainment.
Tero Virtala, CEO of Remedy Entertainment spoke about the new venture.
Remedy’s entry into Games as-a-Service is Vanguard. It was executed by our top-tier team of free-to play experts. Remedy has many strengths and we are creating something exciting for the co-operative multiplayer space. The next step in our company’s development is to expand our publishing capabilities. We are thrilled for the long-term partnership we have with Tencent. With confidence, I can state that it is a great fit to support Vanguard’s ambitious goals. Vanguard offers a global opportunity. Tencent can help Remedy worldwide and will lead operations in Asia and on the mobile market.
Remedy Entertainment is most well-known for its story-focused shooter titles like Max Payne, Control and even Alan Wake. Their upcoming games, CrossfireX and Vanguard, will be their first online multiplayer title. We will have to wait to see more about Vanguard in order to understand how it differs from other games.
