After the Funko Pops AAA video game project was announced earlier this Summer, we now have new information regarding the game. It was recently announced that Funko and 10:10 Games had signed a partnership deal with NBCUniversal that will see all three sides work together to create Funko Fusion.
This new AAA game will be set in a world comprised of different NBCUniversal brands. At this time, none of the featured IPs have been confirmed. However, a teaser image showed off Funko Pop! dinosaurs (Jurassic Park), cyborgs (Battlestar Galactica), and Frankenstein’s monster.
According to Kidscreen, users will be able to play as NBCUniversal characters with up to three other people online. The teen-rated game is being developed using Unreal Engine 5 and will be available on PS5s, the Xbox Series X|S, and PCs. At this time, a release date for the game has not been announced.
“Fans can expect an unparalleled gaming experience with characters from their favorite cult classic films and TV series,” said Funko CEO Andrew Perlmutter. “Funko is known for exceptional in-person and digital experiences that excite and fully engage fans, and Funko Fusion will be no exception. We’re building something with Funatics in mind, Easter eggs and all.”
