But Platinum's Atsushi Inaba has told Develop that the studio may extend their partnership with SEGA beyond the four games the duo have released.
Yes youre correct, we have made the four titles in our contract, he said when asked about the current deal.
The partnership has been great, and we are in talks with Sega now, but theres nothing concrete we can say about it at the moment.
Inaba seemed genuinely stoked by the studio's partnership with SEGA, hailing the publisher for giving the team freedom to make whatever games they wanted.
When we created Platinum Games, we of course talked to a lot of publishers, and Sega offered us the most freedom to develop games. I think the partnership has been great, and Im really grateful for their support.
For the future of our partnership, of course, its not something that we alone can decide. Sega has its stance, and we have ours, but if Sega asks us to make something we might take the offer.
SEGA seems like a great fit for Platinum Games if we're honest. It's unfortunate the publisher's not financially secure enough to really get behind Platinum's titles, but then, the studio make risky games. We've playing Vanquish all afternoon and it feels so much like a Dreamcast game. It'd be nice to see them stick with SEGA.
