505 Games Signs One-Game Development Deal With Roll7

Global publisher of interactive entertainment, 505 Games, part of the Digital Bros group, today announce a one-game development deal with Roll7, the BAFTA award-winning, UK-based studio behind the hit titles OlliOlli, OlliOlli2, and NOT A HERO.

Pre-production work has already started on a brand new concept which will be a complete departure for the studio, but which will be multi-platform, multiplayer-focused, and tap into one of the biggest current gaming trends.

Ian Howe, President of 505 Games said, “We have been impressed with Roll7’s work for a long time and have admired what they’ve accomplished under their own steam. We jumped at the chance to support them when they were looking to take the next step up with their most ambitious project to date.”

Simon Bennett, Director of Roll7 said, “We have been impressed with 505’s approach to signing our next IP, they have been flexible, open and professional throughout the process. Our newly expanded team are excited and raring to move into full production in the next couple of months.”

The unannounced game will be released in 2017.
