Blumhouse Productions Are Now Planning To Develop Horror Video Games

Blumhouse Productions is now venturing into video games. Over the last decade, the production house has garnered quite a name for itself in the horror genre with films such as Get Out, Us, Ma, Insidious, The Purge and Paranormal Activity. Their most recent release is the smash-hit M3GAN. 

Blumhouse Movies: Details about their upcoming video games division

Blumhouse Production’s new video game division will be called Blumhouse Games and will focus on “original, horror-themed games for console, PC, and mobile audiences,” as reported by the company. The company will also be acting as a publisher and working with developers on projects that have a budget of less than USD 10 million, which is quite similar to the strategy they implemented for their film production.

According to media reports, the President of Blumhouse, Abhijay Prakash, has stated that the company had been looking to build a team that will help them grow in the interactive media segment. Meanwhile, Zach Wood, who will be the president of the new division, explains that there is a growing and unique opportunity for the horror genre in the indie game space. “I’m thrilled about teaming up with Blumhouse to meaningfully leverage the company’s brand, reputation, and creative talent,” he adds.

As of now, no new video game projects have been announced. So fans will have to be a bit patient for some exciting new additions to the genre of horror video games.
