Dying Light developer Techland is now a worldwide video games publisher.

The company announced plans of the venture earlier today, revealing that it intends to release two major multiplatform titles and 4 smaller digitally-distributed games each year. Details on the first game to be released under Techland Publishing will be announced soon.

"As a developer, we have worked with many renowned publishers in the past so we know first-hand what makes these kinds of collaborations efficient and satisfying for both parties," said CEO Pawel Marchewka. "After the successful promotional campaigns for Dying Light and Dying Light: The Following, led by our own dedicated team, we believe this is the perfect time to use everything we've learned and help other developers.

"We believe in a flexible and open publishing philosophy, based on respect for the players. We will encourage and financially support developers through investing in bold, unconventional games with great entertainment value."

Besides Dying Light, Techland has previously worked on the Dead Island franchise with Deep Silver and the Call of Juarez series with Ubisoft. The company owns the rights to Dying Light, so it wouldn't be too much of a surprise to see it develop and self-publish a sequel.

It's currently working on two games, including a new fantasy IP.
