Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have announced that they will “strengthen their collaboration,” and that bodes well for Nintendo Switch gamers. Along with starting up two ambitious new projects, the studios will work together to develop Switch ports of Call of Cthulhu and Vampyr. The two titles—respectively developed on consoles and PC by Cyanide Studio and DONTNOD Entertainment—will both be produced by Saber for a release on Nintendo Switch later this year.
