505 Games Teams up With Serellan to Bring TAKEDOWN: RED SABRE to the World

Game publisher 505 Games announced today that they will be partnering with Seattle-based indie developer Serellan to help bring their latest creation, the Kickstarter-backed Takedown: Red Sabre to the world.

Takedown is a tactical shooter and the brainchild of Christian Allen, former creative director of the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise. Takedown will be a spiritual successor to game series like Rainbow Six and SWAT and will be aimed at players who prefer to use methodical and deliberate gameplay as opposed to running in guns ablaze. The game puts players in close-quarters combat, as members of the Red Sabre team. They will use tactics based on those used by SWAT and SOF units. The non-linear environments allow for players to think creatively and use any set of tatics they can think of, adding to the game’s replayability.

Serellan is composed of industry veterans that worked on game franchises such as Ghost Recon, Halo, SOCOM, SWAT, and F.E.A.R.

Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games, said “TAKEDOWN: RED SABRE is a community project, one of the latest to be born out of Kickstarter, and the team at Serellan have already garnered a significant following. Our role in this partnership is to preserve and encourage the team’s direct dialogue with the community while ensuring we leverage our global presence to grow the audience, amplify the buzz and maximize the potential we and the community of early evangelists believe that TAKEDOWN: RED SABRE has.”

Christian Allen, Founder and Creative Director of Serellan said “We are extremely pleased to be able to let our Kickstarter community know that their early faith in the TAKEDOWN dream will be rewarded with a global campaign from a committed partner who consistently launches successful global campaigns from IL-2: Sturmovik to Sniper Elite V2.”

Takedown: Red Sabre will be released on multiple platforms in 2013.
