This fall Universal Home Entertainment will release Cult of Chucky, the seventh film in the Child’s Play franchise that’s directed by creator Don Mancini.
Universal has been incredibly supportive of Chucky, which remains one of the few canon franchises left. With Brad Dourif reprising his voice role, and the original team once again reuniting on Cult, it’s quite possible that Universal is developing some sort of video game to release in conjunction with the sequel.
Child’s Play Video Game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC?

Yes, the official Child’s Play account just asked if us fans want a video game featuring ol’ Chuck. While I do have a lot of question, the main one would be as to who are the people who voted “No”?!
What I find interesting about the question is how it’s phrased…”Child’s Play Video Game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC?” Whoever posted the poll isn’t asking which system they’d like to see it on, they’re eluding to the fact that we would see it on every platform listed. While this is not quite a confirmation nor an announcement, I think it’s safe to say we’ll see Chucky in video game form sometime in the near future.
It’s also worth noting that way back in May of 2011 it was announced that TikiGames was developing a Child’s Play game called “Chucky: Wanna Play”, which obviously never came to fruition after a failed Kickstarter campaign. It does prove that this is a discussion that’s been going on for at least five years, and maybe Universal came in and saved the game to continue its development? Whatever the case may be, how exciting! I can’t wait to fuck with Chuck.
