New games

As well as several hires, PlayStack has signed a publishing deal with mobile developer Foxglove Studios for its new real-time multiplayer heist game Snipers vs Thieves.

The title has just been released on Google Play Early Access and represents the second game PlayStack has added to its portfolio.

The publisher said it expects to announce more publishing deals by the end of the year.

“As soon as we played Snipers vs Thieves we wanted to be the publishing partner,” said PlayStack CEO Harvey Elliott.

“The team has spent countless hours playing the game and we’re looking forward to working with Foxglove Studios to give their game the launch it deserves.

"To ensure we deliver the best results for our developers we have expanded the team with those we consider to be experts in their field. Their combined experience means we can bolster our efforts in a number of areas and continue to pursue even more partnerships.”
