Hellboy: Web of Wyrd publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment will develop and publish video games based on the 2000 AD universe and other comic franchises owned by Rebellion Developments, the two companies announced. The 2000 AD universe is home to Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, ABC Warriors, and more.
“We are huge fans of Rebellion and 2000 AD,” said Good Shepherd head of business development and publishing Amanda Kruse in a press release. “It’s still early days, but building this out with partners who understand the art of adaptation across mediums has been incredible. We are excited to bring fans the hits they are expecting, but even more excited to play with the deep cuts in the library.”
In addition to the aforementioned comics, Rebellion Developments also owns British comics and characters such as Roy of the Rovers, Sexton Blake, The Spider, The Trigan Empire, Halo Jones, and Hewligan’s Haircut.
“We are honored to be the foremost custodians of the rich history of the British comics industry, and as we aim to preserve these legacies,” said Rebellion Developments CEO and co-founder Jason Kingsley. “Rebellion is proud to bring these stories to entirely new generations who will experience them for the first time through our partnership with Good Shepherd.”
