Trading update

 

Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent ("indie"), premium video games, is pleased to provide an update for the six months ended 30 June 2018.

 

The Company has made a strong start to 2018 and expects to deliver full year results in line with market expectations.

 

The Company's back catalogue continues to perform well and H1 saw the launch of a small number of new IP from label partners, including My Time At Portia by Pathea Games, Team17's first indie partner in China. My Time At Portia has successfully launched in early access on PC and illustrates the capabilities and infrastructure of our publishing teams to support global partners.

 

In June 2018, the Company announced the launch date of Overcooked 2, the sequel to the double BAFTA-winning game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.  The game has been co-developed in partnership with indie developer Ghost Town Games and demonstrates the unique ability we provide as a creative partner. The game has seen strong traction with media ahead of the launch on 7 August 2018, and was awarded the highly prestigious 'Best of E3 2018 Game Critics Award' for Best family/social game.

 

The Company had a successful E3, one of the games industry's leading calendar events, with three games featuring in press conferences. In partnership with Nintendo, we unveiled Overcooked 2, PLANET ALPHA was featured in Microsoft's [email protected] montage and a new trailer for Genesis: Alpha One was revealed during the PC Gaming Show.

 

Debbie Bestwick MBE, Chief Executive Officer of Team17, commented:

 

"We are pleased with our performance in the first half of our financial year and the ongoing success of both owned and label partner IP.

 

"The announcement of Overcooked 2 and early access launch of My Time At Portia provides further evidence of our commitment to building brands and collaborating with some of the most creative indie partners around the globe.

 

"We are delighted with the reaction received globally for our games at E3. We have also recently won the 'Develop Publishing Hero' Industry award for the second time, which is further testament to the high quality premium games we select and the hard work of all of our teams who I'd like to thank.

 

"We look forward to updating our shareholders on our progress over the coming months."
