All is not awesome as Awesomenaut publisher goes bankrupt

It seems everything is not awesome as Awesomenauts release reels around this week.

The publisher for the digital only game DTP Entertainment filed for bankruptcy this sent other game news sites to speculate the game wouldn’t see release for either PSN or XBLA as first planned this week (or possibly ever according to some sites).

Luckily the developers for Awesomenauts stepped in to clear up the confusion.

“We have just confirmed that the game is coming this week. We cannot comment on the exact situation any further right now, but rest assured that you can all play Awesomenauts this week!” said Joost, a Ronimo Team Member on their Awesomenaut forums.

This probably comes as double relief for Sony seeing as they won’t have to scramble to find a replacement free game for PS plus users.

How DTP’s insolvency has effected any post launch updates for the game remains to be seen, but for now at least the game is coming out on schedule.
