World of Darkness fans, rejoice. Cyanide Studios is making a Werewolf: The Apocalypse game.
Way back in December of 2015, we reported that White Wolf Publishing was planning to license World of Darkness properties for video games and other things. Today, Focus Home Interactive announced what appears to be one of those things: a Werewolf: The Apocalypse video game developed by Cyanide Studios.
The announcement comes in a press release, and contains little actual game information. What it does say is this:
“Become a werewolf, known as Garou (from French “Loup-garou” meaning werewolf), immersed in the atmosphere of their shamanistic and tribal world. Garou are Werewolf warriors opposed to urban civilization and supernatural corruption, all heading towards inevitable apocalypse.”
Tobias Sjögren, CEO of White Wolf, said of the partnership, “The World of Darkness has always attracted creatives with a strong passion for telling dark and immersive stories. So to work closely with the great talent at Focus Home and Cyanide exploring the savage Werewolves of this universe is an absolutely fantastic experience for us at White Wolf and we are more than excited to see this great and highly relevant IP realized in a video game.”
As with the other game in development by Cyanide Studios – the new Call of Cthulhu – we’re expecting to hear more when Focus Home Interactive holds its “le What’s Next de Focus” event in Paris, France February 1 and 2.
