XIII Remake Plans

Microids announces plans for a major update for the XIII Remake, the remastered version of the first-person shooter released in 2020. The company already apologized to customers who were disappointed in how it turned out. Now, along with the announcement that the game is coming to Switch on September 13th comes word that the previously released Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 editions will be getting a significant update, saying a new developer was hired to finish (or re-finish, perhaps) development:
“We are fully aware and terribly sorry that the initial launch of XIII Remake on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC did not reach players’ expected quality standards. A bit more than a year ago we took the decision to hire the studio Tower Five to finish the development of the game. Tower Five worked with us in the past, notably on the great port of Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders on Nintendo Switch. We really wanted to take the time to fix the game and offer owners of XIII Remake a free update paying the best possible tribute to the original game we all love. The Nintendo Switch version of the game will of course benefit from all the work done to improve the game as well as the multiplayer mode, which will mark the end of the game’s development. We can’t wait for players to put their hands on this improved version of the game and (re)discover the classic adventures of Agent XIII, as soon as it’s released after the Summer.” declares Stéphane Longeard, CEO de Microids.
