Bloober Team partners with Skybound for new horror project

Bloober Team have amassed a solid reputation in the games industry for their work on many different horror titles – both original and based on pre-existing IP. In partnership with Skybound Entertainment of The Walking Dead fame, Bloober Team is set to adapt one of the company’s properties, codenamed ‘R’.

Making the announcement via a press release, Bloober Team revealed the collaboration, saying “Bloober Team has signed a licensing and publishing agreement with Skybound (The Walking Dead and Invincible), on the basis of which the Polish company will create a game codenamed R based on the IP owned by Skybound. The project is scheduled for release in 2025.”

Speaking on this announcement, Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno said “This project is another step in our second-party strategy, where we work with external partners to provide our horror know-how. These are titles that are meant to not only give us financial profit, but are the next steps in achieving our strategy by the end of 2027. We have known our friends from Skybound for a long time and I am sure it will be a successful cooperation.”

As mentioned, Skybound Entertainment is known best for creating The Walking Dead and Invincible graphic novels. That said, the company is also home to many other IPs including ‘Outcast’ – “a supernatural horror story that chronicles Kyle Barnes, a man whose loved ones have been involved in demonic possession since his childhood.”

Based on Bloober Team’s alignment with the horror genre, it’s very possible that they are working on an Outcast game. We will have to wait and see.
