Copenhagen based game studio signals publishing intent as it signs first external publishing deal



Trophy Games today announced that it has signed the publishing rights to the 62nd most anticipated new game worldwide on Steam “The Ranchers” from RedPilz Studio, expected to release in 2023 on PC followed by console and mobile. The game is a premium title expected to list at €39.95.

The Ranchers is an open world country-life sim for 1-4 players where players can raise animals, grow crops, craft machines, build a dream house and explore the gigantic open world where mines and dangerous monsters abound.  Create, develop and manage your ranch on your own or with your friends.  The Ranchers is the debut title from RedPilz Studio, an independent studio based in Paris, France and has already amassed over 200,000 steam wishlists.

“We chose to work with Trophy Games because as game developers also, they understand what it takes to create an engaging and successful game and given their track record of self-published titles, we can see they know what it takes to deliver a commercial and critical success,” said Amyne Berrada from RedPilz Studio. “We recognised a lot of alignment in our thinking and values and we look forward to a successful relationship and launch for The Ranchers.”

“We are super excited to be taking our first steps as publishers of external games and The Ranchers is the perfect game for this. We can use our publishing expertise we’ve gained already by releasing our own titles to a player base of over 20 million players to help build a joint success for RedPilz Studio and Trophy Games,” said Daniel Luun, CEO of Trophy Games Publishing. “I hope this will be the start of a long working relationship with a really talented studio.” 

The Ranchers has over 200,000 Wishlists on Steam and will release PC first and console and mobile to follow. The game will launch in 2023.
