Cyanide Studio will develop a game using the Werewolf: The Apocalypse license, Paradox Interactive -owners of White Wolf- announced on their corporate page earlier today.
The title will be the first video game use of a White Wolf license since Paradox Interactive acquired the pen and paper game manufacturer last year, and will actually be the first use of any of the IPs since Troika’s sadly unfinished Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines in 2004.
We’ve certainly not got much to go on regarding the title, however the blog post infers that most of the negotiation was handled by regular Cyanide publisher Focus Home Interactive, who are set to publish the effort.
Cyanide’s back catalogue includes sevearl ARPG efforts, a few RTS’, and the popular stealth-action series Styx, among others.
On the subject of the setting Martin Ericsson, Lead Story Teller of White Wolf, said “The world is dying. When will you Rage? The core question of Werewolf: The Apocalypse is more relevant today than ever before and the cooperation with Focus and Cyanide will finally give gamers the opportunity to revel in the raw power and primal spirituality of the Garou. What is the price of saving the world with fang and claw? Find out for yourself as we explore the darkest corners of a dying planet.”
More information is reportedly going to be shared at Focus’ own event which is based in Paris and happening across the 1st and 2nd of February.
