Its current pipeline includes: Moving Out (SMG-Australia), Hammerting (Warpzone-Sweden), Neon Abyss (Veewo-China), Going Under (Aggro Crab-America), Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Talos (Heliocentric-America), Main Assembly (Bad Yolk Games-Sweden), The Survivalists (Team17-UK) and Golf with Your Friends on Console (Team17/Blacklight Interactive- UK/Australia).
