Good Shepherd Entertainment and Lionsgate have announced a new video game based on the John Wick film series.
In development by Bithell Games, John Wick Hex is an action-strategy game that aims to accompany the upcoming film John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum. The game’s creative director, Mike Bithell, is known for narrative adventures Thomas Was Alone, Volume, and Subsurface Circular.
The creative and stunt teams behind the film series helped the developer with some of the game’s fight choreography. Each move has consequences to the progress of the story, and were designed to feel like a film scene.
John Wick Hex features an original story, and will allow players to unlock weapons, locations, and suit options. Weapons and ammunition are simulated realistically.
Actors Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are lending their voices to the game, alongside other unannounced actors. The game’s art style will reflect classic noir designs.
The game is currently in development for consoles, PC, and Mac. For the latter two platforms, the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store at launch.
