It’ll probably take more than a few doses of antibiotics to clear this up. Joining up with fellow French developer Asobo Studios, Focus Home Interactive have teased their new action adventure game, titled The Plague.

If it’s indies you’re after, here are some of the PC’s best.

This joint effort is set to be revealed at What Next’s de Focus, a special Paris showcase in February which sees Focus Home Interactive unveiling all their projects which are currently in production. The Plague acts as Asobo Studios’ break away from working on ports and licensed titles, having mainly worked with Microsoft on games like Quantum Break, the Young Conker experience for HoloLens and ReCore, as well as various Disney titles.

“Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio,” says Sebastian Wloch, CEO of Asobo. For this ambitious project, we needed the full support of a strong and growing publisher. The Focus team, through their professionalism, enthusiasm and openness, have naturally established themselves as the ideal partners to bring the experience we wish to offer to players. “

Besides the name, Focus Home Interactive have released very little information about The Plague, besides the concept art seen here. By the looks of it, the game will be set in Paris, as seen by the silhouette of what looks like Notre Dame Cathedral in the background of the image. The Plague has left pre-production, with the first version of the game set to be shown off at the event from February 1-2, so expect more information about this plague-ridden adventure very soon.

“It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio,” says Cédric Lagarrigue, president of Focus Home Interactive. “This new signature confirms our results and know-how on the support of talented independent studios such as Dontnod, Deck13, Giants Software, Cyanide, New World Interactive and Larian on increasingly ambitious projects worldwide. There is a real upscaling of our catalog and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.”
