James Bond and Robocop franchise owners no longer want video games to be trash

We all know the historical fact that games made after movies were mostly bad. There were exceptions, but they were in the minority. But then games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Marvel’s Spider-Man showed corporate leaders that it’s more cost-effective to make a quality non-film-related game than to come up with something quick just to accompany a movie coming to theaters. Warner Bros. figured it out. and Disney, and now Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios have also confirmed that they "understand video games."

Studio MGM owns well-known franchises such as James Bond, Rocky, RoboCop, Stargate, Pink Panther, and others. Most of them have had their video games in one form or another so far and generally haven’t always been great. But now the firm is making a turnaround and will license its franchises to teams it believes will do a good job with them. We’ve already seen examples of this when it was announced that the creators of Hitman were allowed to work on an upcoming James Bond game, which will be the original origin story of Agent 007.

"We don't care about quick earnings, our goal is to expand the value of the brand. We care about authenticity, and we want fans to be happy with the experiences our partners provide. We are looking for partners who are talented and understand how to make the most of our brand. Gameplay is king, experience is paramount, and we want to give the best we can. ” - said Matthew Suzer from MGM in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz.

In addition to the James Bond game, a game about RoboCop was recently announced. The boxing game Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions is also coming out these days. Pink Panther is a game for mobile platforms in development.
