Love it or hate it, Funko is entering the AAA game space

Funko has decided to enter the world of AAA video game development, as it has announced a partnership with 10.10 Games.

Love ’em or hate ’em, Funko and its line of Pop! figures are here to stay, and now we can expect to see them starring in some kind of AAA video game. Announced at San Diego Comic-Con, Funko is collaborating with 10. 10 Games, a studio founded by British developer Jon Burton last year. The two will be making “triple-a video games together,” starting off with an action platformer.

“Creating iconic products that emotionally connect fans to their favourite fandoms is critical to each product portfolio decision,” said Funko CEO Andrew Perlmutter. ““By partnering with 10:10 Games and utilising the best creators in the business, we will have the talent to deliver games that reflect Funko’s unique look and feel across its lines and varied products.”
