John Wick is heading to the video game world in Hex
He’s dominated the action film genre for the past five years and now legendary assassin John Wick is getting his very own video game in the upcoming Hex from publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and Lionsgate, who has debuted the first trailer for the game which can be viewed in the player below!
Directed by Mike Bithell, the man behind the acclaimed indie puzzle platformer Thomas Was Alone, the game will be a tactical role-playing strategy adventure following the titular assassin in an original story created for it, and while it’s currently unclear how many stars from the film will return for the game, Lance Reddick (Fringe) did return to reprise his role as The Continental’s concierge Charon for the trailer, and Ian McShane will also voice his fan-favorite character Winston, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fans of the Keanu Reeves-led action franchise have had a chance to play the legendary hitman in 2013’s heist shooter Payday 2 through a downloadable content pack in 2015 that brought wick into the game through a partnership between Overkill Software and Lionsgate, as well as a skin mod on Fortnite, but this will be the first project in which he will be the focus of his own game.
No release date has currently been set for John Wick Hex, but it will receive both a console and a PC release, with the latter being made exclusively available for users through the Epic Games Store, but fans don’t have to wait long to see Wick return as the highly-anticipated third installment Chapter 3 – Parabellum is hitting theaters on May 17.
