Distributor Focus Entertainment will change its name. Well-known and relevant in the industry, the company announced the change last week, during the publication of the financial report for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023.
From April 1, 2024, Focus Entertainment as a whole is now called PulluP Entertainment. The new name is a palindrome, that is, a word that can be read and written the same way backwards.
This change must still be evaluated by investors at the end of February. According to the statement, the objective is “accelerate organic growth, profitability and revenue stream generation” for the entire group.
Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is one of the games from Focus, which is changing its name.
For now, the conglomerate’s new logo has not yet been officially released.
