HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – September 18, 2023 – Redhaven, a groundbreaking platform dedicated to empowering indie game developers is proud to unveil its game-changing service that opens the doors to game development on any console worldwide. Founded by publisher Freedom Games, Redhaven's mission is to address the unmet needs of indie developers by providing them with the tools and support required to expand their reach and break into the console gaming market, traditionally dominated by larger studios by providing remote access to video game console development hardware.
Indie developers have long been underserved in the gaming industry, struggling to access and develop games for popular consoles like Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Xbox, and PlayStation. Redhaven is on a mission to change this by offering a range of services designed to level the playing field for indie developers. With Redhaven, anyone, anywhere can bring their game to life on any console.
"Our goal is to empower developers to get started with everything they need to port their game to a console within 24 hours," said Ben Robinson, COO at Freedom Games. "We believe that every indie developer deserves an equal shot at success, and Redhaven is here to make that a reality."
Many indie developers primarily release their games on PC, potentially missing out on significant revenue and opportunities. Redhaven recognizes that PC gaming represents only a portion of the potential revenue opportunity, estimating it to be up to 50% of the total potential.
