Bloober Team could have created a game on Saw

Information on this possibility has been disseminated since CEO from Bloober Team, Piotr Babienoin an interview with IGNstating the following:

“I was working with our partner, United Talent Agency (UTA). We met a lot of people from the Hollywood industry. UTA is well known and has good relations with all major film studios. We talked with [diversi studios] and some of them came up to us and said, ‘Okay, guys, you’re focusing on horror and we’d like to work with you.’ But they were very clear: ‘We would like to do this story. We would like to have the game in 2021 [in concomitanza con il lancio del film]’, and so on. We decided: ‘Ok, that’s not what we want to do’. “

Piotr Babieno he then went on to talk about the matter saying that:

“Lionsgate came up to us and said, ‘We love Layers of Fears. We have seen what you are doing with Observer, so we would like to work with you. We know you would like to play your own games, so please, this is the list of our horror IPs; pick one ‘. We could have chosen Saw, which is more popular than Blair Witch, but we decided to take Blair Witch because that universe gives a lot of opportunities to build something new. This was the reason why we chose this project. “

The CEO from Bloober Team He then said that this wasn’t the first time the team had offers to create a video game based on a film saga, but that he was forced to turn down because he was working on other projects. The CEO also confirmed that the team is currently working on two different projects and that he might decide to have the team expand to work on a third project, but that won’t be the case, as he prefers focus on quality.
