Team 17 has turned its back on third-party publishers in favour of digital distribution, the group has told MCV.
The UK-based studio is returning to its publishing roots by increasing the number of downloadable games it produces – at least 15 SKUs in 2010 alone.
The company has only released two boxed games over the last three years, but has produced a string of digital titles under its Worms and Alien Breed franchises.
“Digital distribution has allowed easy and direct access to the game for millions of customers at a time when it has become difficult to get attention at retail,” co-founder Martyn Brown said.
