Peaky Blinders and Doctor Who games will expand to more platforms, confirms Maze Theory

There are going to be more games based on Peaky Blinders and Doctor Who over the next few years, and the announcement comes from the studio Maze Theory. Maze Theory has already got experience with the two franchises having developed Doctor Who: The Edge of Time for VR, and the studio is currently working on the VR game Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom. However, it will not be stopping there. Apparently Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is part of a trilogy of Doctor Who titles, with a console and mobile game due next year. The console game will be available on PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles, Switch and PC, but details are scarce outside the mentions of Daleks, Weeping Angels, and the TARDIS. The mobile game will be a mix of sci-fi and horror, and that is being developed with Kaigan Games.

On the Peaky Blinders front, Maze Theory confirmed it is looking to expand Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom to more platforms when it launches in 2021. All we know about the game is that it will be a narrative action adventure title which features the main characters and locations from the TV show. It is not part of the same line up as Futurlab’s Peaky Blinders Mastermind. Whether this will mean even more games set in the Peaky Blinders universe remains to be seen.


Ian Hambleton, Maze Theory’s CEO, said:

“Maze Theory is evolving to the next level. We know from feedback that fans of shows like Doctor Who and Peaky Blinders crave new and exciting experiences across multiple devices and interwoven stories that create an overall experience far surpassing that of a single game.
The world is facing challenging times right now, but the gaming sector continues to be resilient in times of economic uncertainty. These investments and our new content initiatives enable us to grow our fanbase and drive our business forward. We remain as committed as ever to delivering brilliant gaming experiences.”
Maze Theory is developing another VR title that has nothing to do with Doctor Who or Peaky Blinders, and that game has the working title of The Vanishing Act. That game will allow players to experience memories and explore the human mind in a new way.
