Digital Bros launches new indie label Hook

Italy's Digital Bros has opened a brand new indie publishing label called Hook.

As announced by, this new outfit is separate to its other indie outfit, 505 Games, which CEO Raffaele Galante says is now more focused on larger triple-A titles like Death Stranding and Control.

"505 Games is becoming more and more of an established publisher, having some nice successes with very established studios," he said. "At Hook, we'd like to give the opportunity to other, emerging talent that haven't yet had the chance."

Galante continued: "Hook is a start-up, but as a group we are not,. A worldwide presence through the Digital Bros network, as well as the relationships we've established with Microsoft, Nintendo, PlayStation, Steam, Apple and so on -- that's all part of the service.

"We admire and always learn from the other [indie publishers], we respect what those publishers are doing. Other indie publishers are very well organised, but we give [studios] the chance to reach the market globally."
