INDIEWIRE recently posted some interesting and potentially awesome news. The Weinstein Company has started a video game label. Bob and Harvey Weinstein also own Dimension Films, and you horror buffs know all about them. The label will be known as TWC Games.
“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’s Vice President Matthew Signer, and Beefy Media’s President Adam Boyes (Video game production company) will be working closely together the create great games and relationships with publishers.
“The Weinstein Company is an incredible entertainment company, and I share their vision for creating very high quality content for the marketplace,” said Boyes. “We plan to combine our extensive video game developer relationships with the impressive catalogue of properties to create and produce content made by gamers for gamers.”
This could potentially open up some amazing doors for the video game world, but it could also bring us tons and tons of classic movies turned into shitty games. But only time will tell.
