J.J. Abrams to Enter the World of Gaming with New Project “Spyjinx”

An early beta version of the game is expected next year.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens just weeks away from release, the next logical step for soon-to-be-coronated Grand Overlord Supreme of Nerd Culture J.J. Abrams is to enter the world of gaming.

Today, Abrams’s production company Bad Robot announced a new video game they’re making in partnership with Chair Entertainment, the studio that developed the wildly successful Infinity Blade game series for iOS.

Details of the game are few, but we do know its name—Spyjinx—and that it will apparently be “a unique mix of action strategy gameplay, dynamic world building, and RPG character development—all set in a thrilling, treacherous world of espionage.”

For more information, check out the video below with J.J. Abrams and Chair creative director Donald Mustard, via The Verge.

An early beta of the game, which will initially be available for both mobile platforms and PC, is expected in 2016.
