Starbreeze Sells Back '10 Crowns' Publishing Rights To Developer Mohawk Games

Old World (previously known as 10 Crowns) is an epic-scale turn-based strategy game that lets players create the greatest dynasty in world history.

Starbreeze and Mohawk Games have mutually agreed to sell back the publishing rights to Mohawk for “10 Crowns”. Starbreeze expects to be fully reimbursed for costs the company has had in connection with development of the game.

Starbreeze acquired the publishing rights for 10 Crowns in 2018 and has since then partly financed the development of the game. The title owner Mohawk Games and Starbreeze have now reached an agreement whereby Starbreeze returns the publishing rights for the game to Mohawk and will be able to recoup the development costs at a premium. 

“As we work through our reorganization it also means that we will need to look at each and every opportunity presented and make some hard decisions which are the right for the situation we are in. Mohawk has made good progress on the project so far and we’ll be excited to see the product realized when the time comes for its release”, said Mikael Nermark, acting CEO Starbreeze AB. 

As previously announced, Starbreeze will focus on its core business of games development and publishing. Starbreeze holds publishing rights for “Psychonauts 2”.

Mohawk Games was founded by (Lead Designer of Civilization IV) and Dorian Newcomb (Art Director of Civilization V) in 2013, and previously released market-based real-time strategy game Offworld Trading Company in 2016.
