Starbreeze Studios (Payday 2) have announced a first-person, VR shooter for the HTC Vive in collaboration with film studio Lionsgate.
The game will be developed for “most existing VR headsets” in 2016, however the first playable demo is coming to the HTC Vive headset, during the HTC Vive US and European tour later this year. A “teaser” (read: demo) version is coming to the HTC Vive later this year as well.
“John Wick is the perfect cross-platform property to extend into the fast-growing gaming world, and we believe that a cutting edge VR game will deepen fan engagement and accelerate John Wick’s evolution into one of our next big action franchises,” Lionsgate executive Peter Levin said in a press release.
The game is actually being developed by two studios, WEVR and VR studio Grab, while Starbreeze is handling the publishing rights.
