Frontier Developments, creator of Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster, is moving to bigger things with its next franchise. How about a game created with a movie license of “global renown?”
According to a press release posted on the London Stock Exchange website, the company has licensed the rights to an “enduring movie franchise of global renown” from an unnamed Hollywood studio. The company offered no further details on what the game might be, and said only that more information will be released later this year.
Frontier Developments Chief Executive David Braben is quoted in the release as saying, “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.”
