We look forward to working closely with the team at Games Workshop to bring the full world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar to a broad audience through an immersive and accessible real-time strategy game on both PC and console.

Our roadmap is looking more robust than ever, with two games from our internal developments for each of FY22 and FY23 and an exciting portfolio coming up from our third-party publishing initiative, starting in FY21.

I am incredibly proud of the positive reaction of our staff to the challenges of Covid-19 and would like to thank them all for their dedication. We were delighted to release Elite Dangerous: Fleet Carriers Beta and Planet Zoo: South America Pack before the Easter weekend as planned.”
