Game developer Mike Bithell, known for indie hits Thomas Was Alone and Volume, has shared that his studio Bithell Games will be developing a “fast-paced” and “action-oriented” video game that is based on the cult John Wick film franchise. Titled John Wick Hex, the newly-announced game is slated to release on various consoles as well as PC, and will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store upon launch.

Taking on what looks to be a Metal Gear Solid-type gameplay filled with strategy as much as action, the new game is being lauded as “fight-choreographed chess brought to life as a video game.” Bithell shared that the game was developed in cooperation with the various people behind the film franchise, noting that it would inevitably take on the “signature gun-fu style” while simultaneously expanding the franchise’s universe. The game studio continued by sharing a brief description of the game, noting that “players must choose every action and attack they make while considering their immediate cost and consequences. Every move in John Wick Hex feels like a scene from the movies, and every fight contributes to your progress on the job and requires precise strategic thinking.”

The game will feature a unique noir style, further incorporating the voices of both Ian McShane and Lance Reddick with more to be announced at a later date. The latest John Wick film, John Wick: Parabellum, is out in theatres on May 15.
