Dark Horse Comics Opens Video Game Division
The big news this morning is that Dark Horse Comics is getting into the Video Game space, with the company opening a division known as Dark Horse Games.
This division will be led by Johnny B. Lee, who previously worked at Improbable (Scavengers). "Our mission is to bring joy and entertainment through Dark Horse Comics’ portfolio of over 425 story driven, diverse and unique worlds and characters" said Dark Horse Games on its website.
Hellboy IP: Dark Horse owns some very popular IP, which could convert well to video game properties, including Hellboy, Sin City, 300, Emily Strange, Umbrella Academy, and many more. The games will be released on multiple platforms, including "PC, consoles, mobile, and Cloud."
First-party Properties: Dark Horse Games plans on creating its own first-party games while working with external game developers through licensing partnerships. "DHG is in active discussions with the world’s top gaming companies to develop games with our IPs to be released over the next several years," said Lee.
Who would you match up with some of these IPs? We'd like to see Creative Assembly return for some Spartan: Total Warrior magic with the 300 brand.
