Frontier Developments Secures Movie Licence For Third Game Franchise

[ 06 Feb 2017 08:28 ]

LONDON (Alliance News) - Video games developer Frontier Developments PLC on Monday said it has licensed rights from an unnamed Hollywood studio to develop its third game franchise.

Frontier said its third franchise will be based on an "enduring movie franchise of global renown", but provided no further details on which movie franchise the game will be based on. It said further details will follow later in 2017.

The new game will be the third developed by Frontier after Elite:Dangerous and Planet Coaster.

"The third franchise is an important next step in our growth. We have chosen to license this particular IP to work with as our third franchise, because we believe we can create something very special. It is creatively stimulating, already has a high worldwide profile, and is a perfect match for our expertise," said Frontier Developments Chief Executive David Braben.

Frontier Developments shares were up 3.2% to 286.40 pence on Monday.
