Introducing “Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth,” an upcoming game that takes place in the beloved science fiction universe of Blade Runner. Developed by Annapurna Interactive, this game bridges the gap between the original Blade Runner film and its sequel, Blade Runner 2049, offering players a chance to uncover the untold story of Deckard before his encounter with Ryan Gosling in that abandoned casino.
In Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth, players assume the role of a Blade Runner whose identity remains concealed in the trailer. Their journey takes them to a mysterious location known as the “land of the dead.” Although the trailer reveals little, glimpses of a primitive form of memory manipulation technology reminiscent of Blade Runner 2049 can be seen.
Annapurna Interactive claims that this game is an official part of the Blade Runner canon, set just one year after the events of the original film. This positioning places it at the center of significant events alluded to in the sequel. The prospect of experiencing more Blade Runner in the realm of gaming is undoubtedly exciting, particularly after the recent remastered edition of the criminally underrated 1997 adventure title.
It is worth noting that Annapurna Interactive is not merely publishing the game but is actively involved in its development. Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth marks their debut as an in-house game developer, having gained recognition in the industry for publishing notable titles such as Stray, Outer Wilds, Donut County, and many others. With their exceptional track record, it will be fascinating to witness their transition to in-house game development. While no specific release date has been announced, the game is expected to launch on major consoles and PC platforms.
