Prime Matter

Koch Media, the parent company of Deep Silver, Milestone, Ravenscourt and more, is adding a brand new label under its wing.

Called Prime Matter, it’s a new premium gaming label all about delivering “brilliant immersive games from studios all across the world”. Already, the label has seven new IPs its working on, along with a range of existing IPs.

Prime Matter will be based in Munich, Germany. Its team is made up of both new faces to the industry and veterans with many years of experience under their belt. It’s headed by Mario Gerhold, who’s been with Koch Media for fourteen years, most recently as the director of international marketing.

The projects Prime Matter has already announced to be working on are as follows:

  • Payday 3
  • Crossfire: Legion
  • A new game in the Painkiller franchise
  • Scars Above, a sci-fi action adventure
  • Working title Codename Final Form, a futuristic first person shooter
  • Gungrave G.O.R.E., a third-person action shooter
  • Dolmen, a Lovecraft-inspired sci-fi action horror
  • The Last Oricru, a third-person RPG that combines sci-fi and the middle ages
  • Echoes of the End, a single player fantasy action-adventure
  • The Chant, a third-person psychological thriller
  • Encased, a classic RPG about discovering an alien civilisation

It’s safe to say that Prime Matter presents an exciting new chapter for Koch, and looking at the already-announced IPs, we as consumers have a lot of great games to look forward to. We’ll have more on Prime Matter, and its upcoming games, very soon.
