DTP Entertainment AG, the publishers behind the upcoming (or maybe now not so upcoming) game Awesomenauts has filed for insolvency this week. Having previously published titles such as Crash Time 4, Grey Matter, and Divinity 2 on the Xbox 360 – it’s left the developers of Awesomenauts in a pretty tricky situation.
Jasper Koning from Ronimo Games commented to ThisisXbox:
“Friday we got word that our publisher for Awesomenauts, DTP Entertainment AG has filed for insolvency. At the moment we’re unsure what this means for the game, but we’re working hard to try and resolve the situation. Still, it’s very unlikely that we will be receiving any retail codes through them anytime soon, sorry.”
Due to the current situation our review for Awesomenauts due for release on May 2nd 2012 has been put on hold. DTP Entertainment is one of the leading German publishers, developers and distributors in the entertainment software industry. The company is based in Hamburg and employs over 180 staff, no word has come in from DTP on the current situation and no notice has been placed on their website regarding the insolvency news.
Another sad loss for the industry.
