Hasbro is stepping up their game. A new division at the company will focus on developing AAA games based on their most popular franchises. The new studio will be under the Wizards of the Coast division. The division will be called the New Raleigh-Durham Studio and helmed by Hitman and Batman: Arkham series vets.
Some franchises in development include Transformers, G.I. Joe, Quija, and Micronauts. They are working on an action-adventure G.I. Joe game first.
Making these games feels like a return to a classic genre, licensed games. We discussed some of our favorite licensed games on the last Pushing Buttons.
