300 thumb Epic Games acquired by Legendary Pictures

Game developer Epic Games, has been acquired by Legendary Pictures, the maker of mega-hits such as 300 and Dark Night. According to Variety, the game developer has already shipped 5 million units of Gears of War. Both the companies had already made an agreement to work on Gears based movie which is expected in 2010.

Epic Games provides attraction for any customer because it has got stable flow of cash. Another reason of the deal would be that most of the upcoming movies of Legendary Pictures are leading contenders for games based on PS3 and Xbox.

Have a look at the upcoming lineup of the movies at Legendary Pictures.

  • Superman: Man of Steel (2011)
  • Clash of the Titans (2010)
  • Gears of War (2010) (Already in collaboration with Epic Games)
  • Untitled 300 Sequel (2010)
  • Where the Wild Things Are (2009)
  • The Hangover (2009)
  • Kung Fu (2009)
  • Ninja Assassin (2009)
  • Warcraft (2009)

This is the best time for Legendary Pictures to make such a deal. Plenty of time will be available for the development of game. This move is also smart because the company might have faced a lot of problems while making deals with others later, who may or may not be able to deliver the game on time. Making earlier deal and with such a company will certainly result in a quality of product.
