Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth Announced


Annapurna Interactive has recently announced the development of a new video game set in the beloved Blade Runner franchise. Despite not achieving significant commercial success, Blade Runner has garnered immense admiration for its sci-fi elements, stunning visuals, immersive world-building, and noir themes. While there was a remastered version of a point-and-click game released a couple of decades ago, fans have long awaited a modern video game set in this captivating universe.

Annapurna Interactive's upcoming game, titled Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth, is set to be an official part of the franchise's canon, taking place between the events of Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049. While details remain scarce at the moment, the game will explore a post-Black Out world in Los Angeles. The Black Out refers to a 10-day power outage where replicants orchestrated an effort to destroy the database containing their information, obstructing blade runners from tracking them down. The specifics of the game, including whether characters from the films will appear and its gameplay style, remain unknown. Will it be an action-packed experience, a visual novel, or another point-and-click adventure? Only time will tell. However, one thing is certain—the game will authentically incorporate the visual language of the films to craft its immersive world.

Additionally, Amazon is also developing a new Blade Runner TV series, adding to the excitement surrounding the franchise. However, information regarding the TV series is even more limited at this time. Hopefully, more details regarding Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth will emerge in the near future, although an official release date is yet to be announced. While the game is expected to be available on PC and consoles, the specific platforms it will be released on remain unknown for now.
