Mike Mignola, the legendary comic book artist and writer best-known for creating Hellboy, is attached to the project.
Revealed at The 2022 Game Awards, a new Hellboy game is on its way. Hellboy: Web of Wyrd is an original Hellboy story featuring Lance Reddick as Hellboy himself. Furthermore, Mike Mignola–the legendary comic book artist and writer best-known for creating Hellboy–is attached to the project as a collaborator.
According to its press release, Hellboy: Web of Wyrd is a roguelite action-adventure that features an original story created by Mignola. In addition, Mignola has provided the game’s key art, which looks nearly identical to his iconic comic style.
Created for comics publisher Dark Horse Comics back in 1993, Hellboy follows a half-demon who was summoned to earth as a child. However, despite his gruff appearance and grim origin story, the behemoth uses his supernatural powers to fight against dark and supernatural forces.
While it has yet to be confirmed, Wyrd could be a reference to another Dark Horse series of the same name. The short-lived series followed the invincible Pitnor Weird, a fellow paranormal investigator that the United States was said to turn to when things got a bit, well, weird. However, due to the series underperforming for the publisher, it doesn’t seem particularly likely.
A release date for Hellboy: World of Wyrd has yet to be announced. However, the listing did show the upcoming title will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
