Online casino giant Microgaming announced yesterday its plans to release a new officially licensed slot game based on John Carpenter’s Halloween.
Microgaming has signed a licensing agreement to develop an online slot based on the classic horror movie, Halloween.
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, comments: “Halloween is a true classic and set the standard for modern horror films. It was immeasurably influential in the slasher genre of movies, so it is great to be working with such an iconic and respected brand. Embracing all the elements of what made the movie such a success, our games team are busy developing a slot for release later in the year.”
Ryan Freimann, SVP of Compass, adds: “We are excited to team up with Creative Licensing and Microgaming to bring Michael Myers and Halloween home to all of our loyal fans in the best possible ways through top licensees who create products we feel honour the character, film, and franchise.”
Microgaming has signed an agreement for Halloween through Compass International Pictures, brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation.
The game is currently in development, and scheduled to be released later in the year. It will feature the film’s iconic characters and the renowned soundtrack.
