IguanaBee; the developer behind G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout, sat down with the official Playstation Blog to talk about their upcoming game.
“I’m Daniel Winkler with IguanaBee and we’re the developer behind G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout. The team at IguanaBee grew up watching the animated G.I. Joe series, reading the comic books, and playing with the toys. We worked with Hasbro and Fair Play Labs to create a play experience that reimagined the third person shooter with mechanics inspired and made possible by the G.I. Joe and Cobra universe. It was an honor, and childhood dream, to work with these classic characters. We’re confident in saying G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout was made by fans for fans.”
“We always strive to define our core characters, their unique attributes/abilities and personalities through gameplay as much as possible,” says Rich Zambarano, Hasbro’s Gaming Content Manager. “Because this is a deeply story-driven gameplay experience, and I think we were able to successfully capture that depth for both the G.I. Joe and Cobra characters. I hope players and fans will greatly enjoy this aspect of the game.”
The developer also mentioned that G.I. Joe Superfans will find a special Easter-Egg on the final mission of the story mode.
Publisher Gamemill also confirmed that the game will be out tomorrow on Console (PS4, XBOX One, and Switch). No word yet regarding the PC release.
