Megadeth To Make a Video Game?

Thrash metal pioneers Megadeth have always had a foot in video games. Dave Mustaine and company have recorded songs for games like Gears Of War, Duke Nukem 3D, and even Guitar Hero. So is it any surprise that after bands like Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, Motörhead and Judas Priest have created games inspired by their music, Mustaine says the band is ion the process of doing a game of their own?

While at the New York Stock Exchange this past week, Mustaine mentioned in an interview that, along with the band’s wine and beer ventures, they’re also “working on a video game that encompasses a lot of the band’s history and a lot of little riffs that we’ve never used before, stuff like that”.

While Mustaine didn’t elaborate any more on that, he did say that the band is preparing for the next tour, and is in the process of starting work on their next record. Still, begin the speculation as to what exactly we’re going to get. Will we have a game like Iron Maiden’s Legacy Of The Beast, or Priest’s Road To Valhalla? Does it even matter when it’s friggin’ Megadeth?

    A video game by Dave Mustaine? Does this mean you’re an NRA member with the goal to shoot minorities? Cause that guy is completely nuts…

    I did read this article correct right ? Megadeth To Make a Video Game? This is 100% correct and I am not dreaming right ?

    • Tan Shearer

      Take it with a grain of salt. It’s highly likely it’ll just be a short mobile game.

    i hope it’s not a mobile game , imagine just imagine a AAA beat em up or shooter OR BOTH

      It most likely is a mobile game as they are the only games within their price range now. It’s very expensive to make a home console game now. They should have done it in the 80’s or 90’s where it was affordable for a semi-big band to put out a console game.

        yeah ….maybe one day we will have a Megadeth game made by platinum games…….who knows

    In case you’re wondering. The first band to have their own video game was Journey all the way back in 1983 on the Atari 2600.
