Team17 has partnered with Playtonic Games to help publish Yooka-Laylee.

The partnership will allow Playtonic to build on its successful Kickstarter campaign which launched in May.

In just over 30 minutes the project hit its $270,000 funding goal. By mid-June, the project had earned £2,090,104.

The deal will allow the Playtonic team to focus 100% of its efforts on “building the best possible version” of Yooka-Laylee without worry over the publishing aspect.

If you want more information than what we gleaned from the press release sent over, there is an update on the Kickstarter page which goes deeper into the new partnership.

Yooka-Laylee is planned for an October 2016 release on Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One.
