Yep, it looks like The Weinstein Company is turning many of their properties into video games via their newly launched label,TWC Games. So will we be venturing into the deepest, darkest parts of hell, in Hellraiser?

Check out the Press Release below;

“The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced today a new initiative in the video game space by launching TWC Games.

Properties in The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films catalogue include SCREAM, HELLRAISER, HALLOWEEN, SCARY MOVIE, and CHILDREN OF THE CORN, among many others.

TWC Co-Chairman Bob Weinsein expressed excitement about the new initiative. “The video game marketplace is changing at such a rapid rate. With all of the digital platforms, there are so many opportunities to broaden our audience with compelling, high quality, cost-efficient, video game entertainment.”

TWC Games has formed a strategic consultancy with Beefy Media, a video game production company, to foster relationships with publishers and create high quality games. Beefy Media President Adam Boyes will work closely with Matthew Signer, TWC Vice President, Production and Creative Affairs, to foster strategic partnerships and oversee all production aspects of the games.

          i would love to play a good halloween game. unfortunately I am pretty much 100% they wont be employing any big name game houses to make their games. They will be cookie cutter crap I am sure.

        I’m looking forward to all of those games, and I’ve been wanting a Halloween and Scream video game since, forever. I really have confidence that they will be good, considering, Saw the Video Game was pretty good.

        “cost efficient” – pretty much sums up what will most determine the “high quality” games they will be making.
