Dark Horse Comics Venture Into Gaming And Digital Division


Dark Horse Comics will create games through licensing partnerships, first-part properties, and external game developers. The company plans to bring the 425 characters created by the brand and their universe to video games.

The brand is in discussion with gaming studios to create licensed titles based on the Dark Horse Comics library which could be released over the next few years and can be played on PC, consoles, mobile, and cloud-based services.  

Johnny Lee, the General Manager at Dark Horse Games said, “It is a good time for the expansion as gaming is hot and it also generates more revenue for a specific intellectual property more than any other forms of entertainment. As for Dark Horse, 2020 was a great year with good revenue.”

He further added, “We are very focused to find the right game development partner for the top IPs. We have a few evergreen properties like Hellboy, with which interesting games and collaborations can be looked at. We and our partners could evaluate if a character or a story IP would be a good fit for games. We plan to synergize our game and launch it with unique multimedia efforts.”

The brand did not have any significant presence in the gaming space but Dark Horse Comics did license a game called Hellboy: the Science of Evil in 2008. This game was published by Konami, developed by Krome Studio and Big Ant Studios. Dark Horse Comics is now the official publisher of the Hellboy game. When it came to the video game rights the brand fell short. 

Dark Horse is based in Oregon, Milwaukie, and is headed by Mike Richardson. For the past 35 years, Dark Horse has published world-famous properties like Emily the Strange, Usagi Yojimbo, Resident Alien, Umbrella academy, etc.
