Encased to be published by Koch Media, coming in 2021

Encased, the promising-looking post-apocalyptic isometric RPG from Russian studio Dark Crystal Games, has been out on Early Access since last September. During that time the game has received three major content updates, but it's become clear that the final release will not be coming this year, with some players citing an overall lack of content in the available build. Today Dark Crystal announced that Encased has been picked up publisher Koch Media AKA Deep Silver (apparently a deal that was finalized as early as October). This will allow development to continue into 2021, and it also means the game will be getting full voice acting, more localization options and a multiplatform release. Here's the official press release from Koch:

Larkspur, Calif. (Dec. 18, 2020) – Koch Media and Dark Crystal Games today announced their future cooperation for the upcoming sci-fi RPG Encased. The Koch Media Group will support the global launch of the game on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, as well as PC within one of its publishing labels. Future details on the publishing and release date will follow at a later point. Encased will be fully released 2021.

“From the very first day of development, Encased has evolved as an independent project, created with our own resources and the support of the amazing Kickstarter community. The partnership with Koch Media will maintain our creative freedom and help us showcase the game to a huge global audience," said Vyacheslav Kozikhin, creative director at Dark Crystal Games. "Encased will now feature full voice acting, additional language localization, and will be released for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the same time. We’re excited to bring this adventure to a much larger global audience.”

Encased fits perfectly into our portfolio and within our global expertise on publishing RPGs," said Mario Gerhold, International Marketing Director at Koch Media. "Our team here in Munich is already working hard behind the scenes and we look forward to sharing more information about the game and how Encased fits into our multi-label strategy very soon.”

Encased is a tribute to classic turn-based post-apocalyptic RPGs. Fighting enemies, exploring an anomalous wasteland, and leveling up a character while joining one of the forces ruling a ruined world. Encased inspires nostalgia for classic PC gamers and layers in fresh takes on the classic genre to welcome new players.
I imagine there will be a fancy new trailer and release date announcement for Encased sometime next year. In the meantime, the game's Early Access build will be getting its fourth content update next week.
