Cloud gaming developer and publisher 110 Industries has acquired a license to make a new Blade Runner game, sources have said.
The announcement of the game was made at the developer’s new studio in Switzerland, in which the game was announced to release in 2025.
Not much is currently known about the game as the announcement came in the form of a short and brief cinematic trailer, which is expected to release in the near future.
No further details about the game were revealed at the event.
The new project shouldn’t be confused with the Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition by Westwood Studios, which is a remastered version of the 1997 cult adventure game.
EA founder Trip Hawkins joined 110 Industries earlier this year as an advisor to the Board, with his primary role of leveraging the brand and corporate culture of the company.
“110 Industries is a really ambitious company with a compelling vision and an exciting slate of upcoming titles, so this is a project that I’m really excited to be involved in,” Hawkins said. “I believe they have the potential to make a big impact on the industry and I’m looking forward to doing everything I can to assist the company in delivering on that.”, Hawkins said.
110 Industries is currently working on several projects including Wanted: Dead, Red Goes Faster, and Vengeance Is Mine.
UPDATE: 110 Industries has since provided comment in response to this report:
“Whatever was shown behind closed doors was shown under NDA. We work with a number of partners on a number of projects we can’t disclose at the moment. At the same time we deny that we secured the license.”
I HOPE THE OLD BR FOR PC INCL IN THE SPECIAL EDITION 🙂
