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.
