Tick tock, Mister Wick.
The beloved action film franchise John Wick just announced its first debut as a video game. Published by Good Shepherd Entertainment, in partnership with Lionsgate Games, the game is being directed by acclaimed game director Mike Bithell.
The game will be a “fast-paced, action-oriented strategy game” featuring the “gun-fu style” of the films. It features an original main story campaign, driven by the voice talent of stars Lance Reddick and Ian McShane.
Bithell, Good Shepherd, and Lionsgate partnered with creative agency AV Squad to write original concepts, direct game capture within the engine, and edit the trailer.
Coming to consoles and PC, the release date has not yet been announced, but it will be an exclusive to the Epic Game Store at launch.
