While there is no mentioned of proposed Star Wars games, the move into video gaming by Bad Robot could potentially see GFFA content making its way to the home of the production company involved in some of the current Star Wars movies.
The Hollywood Reporter take a look at this new initiative by J.J. Abrams company.
J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot banner has expanded into the gaming space.
Company president and COO Brian Weinstein announced Thursday that the entertainment production company has entered a strategic relationship with Tencent, the Chinese media giant, to form Bad Robot Games. The partnership will exclusively develop games by Abrams and Bad Robot, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment joining the gaming arm as a minority investor.
“I’m a massive games fan, and increasingly envious of the amazing tools developers get to work with, and the worlds they get to play in. Now we are doubling down on our commitment to the space with a unique co-development approach to game making that allows us to focus on what we do best, and hopefully be a meaningful multiplier to our developer partners,” said Abrams. “Dave (Baronoff’s) creativity, deep passion and skillful leadership will be incredibly valuable as we harness our partner Tencent’s expertise, experience and reach to bring our games to audiences around the world.”
