‘Barbarian’ Getting Video Game Adaptation from New Regency Pictures and Diversion3 [Exclusive]

Zach Cregger‘s hit Barbarian is the latest horror movie to get a video game adaptation for PC and consoles, courtesy of New Regency Pictures and Diversion3 Entertainment. Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive scoop on the upcoming video game this afternoon.

Diversion3 Entertainment will lead the creative team adapting Barbarian in video game form. Having Diversion3 Entertainment on board is a big deal right off the bat, as the company previously worked on both Friday the 13th: The Game and Evil Dead: The Game.

“We’re very excited to work with the team at New Regency to expand on the settings, characters, and creatures of Barbarian,” said Tim Hesse, Executive Producer of Diversion3 Entertainment. “The film did a magnificent job of not only scaring audiences with its unexpected and horrifying twists and turns, but also in establishing strong characters thrown into terrifying situations.

“We look forward to exploring these themes further in the game.”

“Expanding the Barbarian universe into gaming provides a new way to capture the horror that made the film such a success. We’re thrilled to collaborate with the incredibly talented team at Diversion3 Entertainment to immerse new and existing fans in this world,” added Yariv Milchan, Chairman and CEO of New Regency Pictures.

In the film, starring Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, and Justin Long, a young woman books a rental home, only to discover that a man is already staying there. Against her better judgement, she decides to spend the evening, but soon discovers that there’s a lot more to fear than just an unexpected house guest.

Currently, there is no release date for the Barbarian video game adaptation, with more information on the game’s developer and publisher coming soon. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
