‘Saw’ Producers: Another Video Game Definitely On The Way

Let the game–and the next video game–begin.

The wildly popular Saw horror film franchise has spawned two video games that did not set the world on fire, and the last decade has not seen another. But fans have always wondered if a third game may be in the offing.

Well, according to a report on JoBLo.com, the two producers of the movie franchise recently promised just that. In an interview, Mark Burg and Oren Koules said Lionsgate has brought them some “amazing projects we are exploring now.” The producing teammates then went on record as saying a third video game based on the Saw films “will 100 percent happen.”

Saw: The Video Game from Zombie Studios and Konami–a third-person survival horror game set between the first and second films–hit PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and PC in 2009, with Saw IIFlesh & Blood following the next year. No information was forthcoming about the storyline or proposed release date for the new game.

The Saw film franchise–created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell–consists of nine movies, with the first eight films primarily revolving around John Kramer (Jigsaw). The most recent installment–SpiralFrom the Book of Saw–hit theaters this past May.

The film series as a whole has received mixed reviews from critics, but has been a cash cow at the box office. The franchise has raked in more than $1 billion worldwide to date.
