Com2us has announced that it has partnered with Skybound Entertainent, a multi-platform production company, to help branch out the flagship RPG Summoners War. This will see the franchise spreading across various mediums such as comics, an animated series and more, as the announcement came prior to the final set of matches at the Summoners War World Arena Championship in Los Angeles, taking place at the Microsoft Theater.
We will also see the likes of Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, along with Skybound co-founder and CEO, David Alpert, teaming up with Catherine Winder, the CEO of Skybound North and producer of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and The Angry Birds Movie to oversee the development of Summoners War in these new areas outside of gaming.
Com2us has expressed their desire to move into additional forms of media entertainment, and Skybound intends to help deliver that with engaging origin stories, as well as various formats of content to accompany the game.
Kirkman, Winder and Alpert offered the following joint statement:
“The Summoners War team has created an incredibly compelling and fantastical world ripe with engaging characters and storytelling opportunities. We are excited and proud to partner with them to expand this rich universe, loved by so many from around the world for audiences across all cultures and ages, into multiple forms of content filled with the adventure and wonder of the game.”
Summoners War presents a mobile turn-based strategy game that sees players taking on the role of a summoner, where they utilize over 1000 monsters to take the fight to in turn-based battles.
