Deep Rock Galactic studio unveils Ghost Ship Publishing

The developer of co-op romp Deep Rock Galactic, Ghost Ship Games, is opening a brand new publishing arm.

The imaginatively-named Ghost Ship Publishing appears to initially be working with indie studios from its native Denmark, with the first round of titles it is releasing being announced at the start of March.

Since its 2018 release, Deep Rock Galactic has brought in over ten million players and has sold 5.5 million copies

"Becoming a publisher is a way for us to give a bit back to the industry, and to help lift up both the Danish gaming scene and other small developers like ourselves across the globe," Ghost Ship CEO Søren Lundgaard (pictured) said.

"Our goal is to assist fellow developers with funding and marketing expertise, while also helping them establish a solid business. Founding a publishing brand is a passion project for us, and we are very excited to make this a reality.”

CCO Mikkel Martin Pedersen added: “Starting a publishing company is a natural next step for Ghost Ship. We love games and the success of Deep Rock Galactic has now enabled us to help other developers create theirs. We can’t wait to get started.”
