‘Hellboy: Web of Wyrd’ – Lance Reddick Voiced Hellboy for Upcoming Video Game

Originally announced late last year, Hellboy: Web of Wyrd is on the way from publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Upstream Arcade, a brand new video game that’s set in the world of Mike Mignola’s iconic franchise. We had no idea who would be voicing Hellboy in the game, but that announcement came over the weekend in the wake of the devastating news of Lance Reddick‘s passing. In one of his final roles, it has been revealed that Reddick (John Wick, Netflix’s Resident Evil series) voiced Big Red in the upcoming Hellboy video game.

The team announced on the game’s official Twitter account, “Our hearts are with Lance’s family, friends, colleagues, and fans. Lance was a brilliant performer, generous with his time and attention — he had talent beyond compare, and we remain honored to have him as our Hellboy.”

Lance Reddick, who passed at just 60 years old, was no stranger to the world of gaming. He memorably voiced characters for video games in the Destiny and Horizon franchises.

Hellboy: Web of Wyrd is a third-person roguelite action adventure, with an original story created in collaboration with Dark Horse Comics and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. The game sends Hellboy “on a series of vastly different and wholly unique adventures,” but they’re all tied to the mysterious Butterfly House.

“Built in 1962 by occultist Pasquale Deneveaux, The Butterfly House is more than a mere residence; it’s a gateway. Its perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometries were designed with a singular foul purpose in mind: to open doorways into a terrible and fascinating dimension called The Wyrd.

“Twenty years later, an agent of the B.P.R.D. is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the mansion and promptly goes missing. It’s up to you—Hellboy—and your team of Bureau agents to find your missing colleague and uncover the secrets of The Butterfly House.

“During the investigation, you will explore wondrous and strange planes of existence contained within The Wyrd, each one home to powerful monsters, forgotten godforms, magnificent treasures, and powerful secrets. But be warned, because ancient evil stagnates within the furthest reaches of The Wyrd… evil that is eager to be let out.”

Hellboy: Web of Wyrd will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. At this time, we don’t yet have a release date for the game. Stay tuned.
