A new video game by GI Joe is in development by a new studio formed by Wizards of the Coast – the world’s largest publisher of adventure games, including Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, and Avalon Hill, a pioneer of modern war and cooperative strategy games like Betrayal at House on the Hill, Axis & Allies, and Lords of Waterdeep.
A new GI Joe video game is in development at a new studio formed by publisher Wizards of the Coast , the same as the Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons brands. As of now, the project has not yet been officially announced, but the Wizards of the Coast job offers page is openly looking for developers to help with a ” AAA 3rd person action/adventure game set in the GI Joe universe “. Let’s say it’s not very misunderstood.
The new GI Joe development studio is based in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, which is also the headquarters of Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite and the Unreal Engine. Reading the announcements you are talking about fights of some kind and progression systems. Unfortunately, the details are very vague, so there is no need to elaborate.
Why is Wizards of the Coast making a GI Joe game? Because it is part of Hasbro and because it has long since started the gestation of its development pole, so for the group it must have been the most natural choice to entrust it with the game. The GI Joe franchise has been repeatedly translated into video games. After all, it is full of good guys and bad guys shooting at each other, so what more could you ask for to make an action?
