So this means it's no longer a Sony owned/published IP and might go multiplats?

Tequila Works has chosen to reacquire the rights to its adventure game, RiME, and is working hard to realise its aspirations for it.

So it's not a Sony IP anymore, wonder what went wrong.

EDit: There were some rumors about the relationship between Sony and TW, which was not good.

Without further explanation , the announcement apparently involves separating the exclusive project environment PlayStation (Sony was the publisher until now ), implying an independent development and opening up the possibility to come out on other platforms outside PS4 .

Well there were some rumblings about it being a troubled development. I am not that surprised. I almost expected a full cancelation at this point.

The url actually says: doing Rime without Sony. Wow, they've dropped it.


Yeah, it's a confirmation.

Wow. I'm really looking forward to Rime and always used it in my list of games that made me happy to have a PlayStation.

I wonder what happened.

Must be a mess if Sony was willing to give up something like Rime. They're known for always backing those diverse/creative games, that probably won't sell.

Edit- I knew something was up, we didn't hear anything about it in a long time.

Yikes, this must have been a huge mess. I was really looking forward to it at first, but after the stories about the footage all being trickery and so many months passing without any word on it, I'm not very optimistic any more. I wonder if they will self-publish it, or partner with another publisher.

Their first game gave me no confidence that Rime was going to be good, as amazing as it looked, and Sony dropping it is not exactly restoring that confidence.

It's alright.

With The Last Guardian coming out this year, Sony no longer needs the copycat product. Edit: with all due respect! It looked alright for what it tried to do

On a similar note, how's Abzu doing? That one showed real promise.

It's their money, I'm sure they can do whatever they want with it (as long as the contract says so).
