Yooka-Laylee Finally Has a Publisher

Jason Clement

Gamers have been waiting to hear if Playtonic's Yooka-Laylee would ever have a publisher or if the developer would be self-publishing in the end, but today we finally have an answer. Yooka-Laylee will in fact have a publisher, and it's none other than Team17!


Known mostly for their work on the Worms franchise, Team17 have dipped their toes into publishing waters more recently, especially with the likes of indie titles such as The Escapists this year.


Playtonic's Gavin Price had this to say on the Team17 partnership:


"Team17“s 25-year industry-leading expertise will significantly benefit Yooka-Laylee in a myriad of ways, not least in expanded localisation, improved QA testing, certification and access to vastly better resources for our team. Working alongside such a strong partner will allow the Playtonic team to focus 100% of our efforts on building the best possible version of
for backers and new fans alike.”


And there you have it. The deal should allow Playtonic to focus solely on Yooka-Laylee's development while leaving the rest for Team17 to handle. If everything goes to plan, this'll likely be a win-win situation for both studios.


Yooka-Laylee is planned for an October 2016 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC and Mac platforms.


What are your thoughts on Team17 publishing Yooka-Laylee?
