Exciting News: Arkane Lyon Announces Development of Blade Game

The developer of Deathloop, Arkane Lyon, is Marvel’s resident vampire hunter Blade. There’s a trailer, but it’s just a cinematic with no gameplay. This is exciting because Arkane Lyon is the team behind Prey and the Dishonored 2. It also made the vampire shooter Redfall, which had some good ideas that were marred by bad ideas. This has nothing to do with the upcoming Blade film. It’s an original game set in Paris that adapts the comic book character. Arkane calls it a mature single-player adventure likely to feature more gore than other Marvel games. Marvel Games is on board, as VP and creative director Bill Roseman took the stage at The Game Awards after the trailer reveal. Marvel is hands-on with its games nowadays, and recent titles like Spider-Man 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy had its stamp of approval. There’s no release date and no announced platforms for Blade, though the entire team at Arkane Lyon is currently “pouring so much love” into the game.
