Publisher Next Games and Alcon Entertainment have partnered together to create a mobile game for Blade Runner 2049. CEO of Next Games, Teemu Huuhtanen announced on Wednesday at the second day of Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017, also known as E3, that Blade Runner 2049 will be coming to mobile. However, at this point in time, the companies did not disclose a specific title or when might the exact release date be. So let's dive in to see some more details on the forthcoming Blade Runner 2049 mobile game.
Blade Runner 2049 Is Coming To Mobile Soon
Alcon is producing the movie sequel "Blade Runner 2049" and Warner Bros will be handed the domestic distribution, while Sony will handle international regions. The cast includes Ryan Gosling working with Harrison Ford in order to reprise his memorable role as Rick Deckard, the Blade Runner. The movie will be launched on 6th October. Teemu Huuhtanen stated:
“We are thrilled to work on Blade Runner, a true pop culture icon. We are determined to deliver on Blade Runner’s unique themes and vision of the future. Both we and Alcon Entertainment value mobile games that are authentic and true to the original property. Our partnership is a confirmation of Next Games’ mission to redefine the way entertainment franchises can be transformed into, and enhanced by, highly engaging mobile games enjoyed by millions of fans globally.”
Co-founders of Alcon Entertainment, Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove said in a statement that, “We are excited to be working with Next Games on this exciting new endeavor. The world of Blade Runner is uniquely rich ground for storytelling across a variety of platforms, games included.”
Blade Runner 2049 takes place thirty years after the original movie launched back in 1982, directed by Ridley Scott. The Blade Runner sequel casts Ryan Gosling as the LAPD Officer K who unveils an aged secret that has the potential to drown the remains of the society. Officer K in turn tends to find the thirty-year missing former blade runner, Rick Deckard.
