MGM Global Content Vice President Robert Marick spoke about the studios interest in games based on popular movies. MGM followed the success of Disney and Warner Bros. in this field — features the company liked that games do not depend on the release of new movies and TV series, but could tell their own stories within the popular brand.
As the most successful example cited “Spider-Man” Insomniac Games. MGM allegedly wants to offer players “modernized nostalgia” when familiar elements are served in new Formate.
Among the titles the studio wants to turn into games: “James Bond” “Blonde in Law” “Pink Panther” “Addams Family” “Rocky” “Creed” “Robocop” “Stargate” “Vikings: Valhalla”. Matthew Souzer, who used to work on interactive business development at MGM, points out that many of the topics mentioned above were absent from the video game world.
This, though, sounds pretty strange in the background of the release of the same Assassins Creed Valhalla. Some series have already started to turn into games — hence the collaboration with IO Ineractive, who is creating a new Bond project.
Not long ago, the announcement of Robocops new game, Robocop: Rogue City. In addition, Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions comes out this week, and “Blonde in Law” and “Pink Panther” will receive mobile projects based on the grounds.
MGM also reflects on the possibility of creating new games on “Sinister Dead: Army of Darkness” and “Killer Clowns from Space”. The last picture was not even thought of a year ago, but fan inquiries about Universals themed merchandising and attraction caused the authors to change the opinion of the authors.
Something similar happened to Robocop & mdash; after the character glimpsed Mortal Kombat, his popularity increased again. MGM does not make a fundamental distinction between platforms, but studio representatives say they want to create good products for which the popular brand is just a cake cake cake.
So, for example, they have turned to IO Ineractive. And in the future, too, plan to look for developers interested in the brands under discussion.
In addition, MGM does not oppose plans to integrate movie characters into existing games, if that makes sense — as it did with the same Robok in MK.
