French publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced a new partnership with Sumo Digital during its annual What's Next event.

Known most recently for its work on Crackdown 3, Sumo Digital's work also includes Little Big Planet 3, Forza Horizon 2, and Dead Island 2.

The first title from this partnership will be a multiplayer experience set in a universe that is "as dark as it is violent." The unannounced title will be developed by recently-acquired Sumo Newcastle – the studio behind EVE: Valkyrie.

Sumo Digital wasn't the only new developer to sign with Focus either. Gasket Games, Blackbird Interactive, Limestone Games, and Lightbulb Crew have all penned deals with the French publisher.

In addition to new deals, Focus Home also renewed partnerships with Vampyr's DONTNOD Entertainment, and Deck13; the studio behind The Surge series.

Finally, Focus Home announced that Farming Simulator, Vampyr, and Call of Cthulu would be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
