Borderlands workshop Gearbox has currently purchased the Risk of Rain IP after formerly releasing Risk of Rain 2 for Hopoo Games, however the initial devs claim the hit indie roguelike will certainly still obtain updates in the future while they go after brand-new IP individually.

GamesRadar+ connected to Hopoo founder Paul Morse for even more information on what the sale of the Risk of Rain IP (once again, not Hopoo itself) indicates for the collection. Regarding Hopoo’s payments to Risk of Rain moving forward, Morse can just claim that he’ll share even more details in the future. However, he did drop some light on exactly how the sale will certainly impact Risk of Rain 2 gamers. 

“Gearbox intends to continue making content for Risk of Rain 2 and will have more to share about the future of the franchise in the months ahead,” he claimed, resembling a tweet (opens up in brand-new tab) from Hopoo asserting that this sale will certainly bring about “more [Risk of Rain].” “We know that our friends at Gearbox are incredibly motivated to do right by the fans.” 

I additionally inquired about the “very special passion project” which Gearbox teased in the joint declaration revealing its acquisition of the Risk of Rain IP. Morse validated that “this is a project being worked on at Hopoo Games internally and will continue to be so.”

Perhaps most significantly, Morse cleared up that in spite of offering its key IP, Hopoo is refrained production games. The workshop prepares to create brand-new, non-Risk of Rain games individually moving forward, Morse attested. 

This brand-new IP will not be the workshop’s initial non-Risk game – it launched the 2D stealth-action game Deadbolt (opens up in brand-new tab) in 2016, 3 years after the initial Risk of Rain – however it will certainly be Hopoo’s initially brand-new IP in at the very least a years.

Risk of Rain 2 is conveniently among the best Switch indie games you can play today.
