The studio began offering a seven-minute preview of the first-person shooter game for the HTC Vive VR headset on Thursday at New York Comic Con as part of the campaign for “John Wick: Chapter 2,” which opens on Feb. 10. The game will launch that month on the digital distribution platform Steam.
The preview is titled “John Wick Chronicles: An Eye for an Eye.” Lionsgate also announced that it’s offering pre-orders of the game along with the original “John Wick” as part of an exclusive U.S. bundle.
Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the original with David Leitch, is helming the sequel. Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk is returning to produce.
Lionsgate began selling foreign markets for the sequel at Cannes. The original movie grossed $43 million domestically and $35 million internationally following its launch in 2014.
“John Wick” also starred Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, and Willem Dafoe. Reeves played a retired hitman seeking vengeance for the killing of his puppy, a gift from his late wife.
Moynahan, Leguizamo, and McShane are reprising their roles and Derek Kolstad returned to script. Common has been cast as the villain along with Peter Stormare.
Lionsgate unveiled a promo Wednesday in anticipation of Saturday’s Comic Con panel, which will be attended by Reeves and other cast members and include the release of a new trailer.
