Finnish indie game studio Dreamloop Games and Swedish indie studio Neon Giant have partnered together to bring cyberpunk RPG The Ascent to PS4 and PS5 consoles.
The game will now be coming to PlayStation consoles this coming March 24, 2022. In order to make this happen, Dreamloop Games cooperated with Neon Giant for the release.
Dreamloop is known for its long track record of collaboration projects like Bloober Team’s Layers of Fear 2 for porting it to the Nintendo Switch. They have now brought their platform expertise for the cyberpunk RPG’s PlayStation debut.
“The Ascent is absolutely iconic in the genre already – it’s been great to get the opportunity to work on such a deeply important title and alongside such talented folks,” said Steve Stewart, Dreamloop’s Associate Producer for the PlayStation 4 and 5 ports and Head of Communications.
“We had huge respect for the team over at Neon Giant before working with them – both for The Ascent and for their founders’ absurd body of work – and that respect has only grown over the time we’ve spent on the project.”
“From the first time I saw The Ascent, I thought it was absolutely badass,” said Stewart. “I knew from the first line in the trailer that I was going to love it, and when it launched I dove in and just ate up the beautiful world. So in that regard, we’re incredibly hyped to be part of bringing it to PlayStation; me perhaps most of all, as PlayStation 5 is also where I spend most of my time gaming.”
The Ascent launches on PS4 and PS5 this coming March 24, 2022.
