I love the original Blade Runner movie for many, many reasons, so I’m really looking forward to the upcoming Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the classic Harrison Ford movie coming to a movie theater near you October 6th, 2017. And it looks like Blade Runner is coming to your devices, too. Today, Alcon Entertainment and Next Games announced that they are working on a Blade Runner 2049 mobile game. Although we don’t have much more information about the game, we do know that the game hopes to be a “highly engaging mobile game enjoyed by millions of fans globally."
Now, that statement doesn’t sound too comforting to me, but I hope I’m wrong. The Blade Runner universe offers great opportunities for storytelling, something Alcon Entertainment’s co-founders also point out, so I’m hoping we get a game worthy of the IP. Here’s hoping.
