'John Wick' Comes For You In VR FPS Next Year

And there's nothing you can do about it....except buy a VR set from HTC.

Lionsgate has just announced they're teaming up with developer Starbreeze (of 'Payday 2' and 'Chronicles of Riddick' fame) to produce an FPS based on badass Keanu Reeves actioner 'John Wick'. Not just any FPS, however, but one tailor-made for VR headsets.

No specific details have been released just yet, aside from the fact that it will be based on the elaborate world and characters of the film, as opposed to the 'Payday 2' DLC which just stuck John in the middle of existing heists, although Starbreeze also mentioned there's more of that coming, too. It's set for release in Spring 2016, well ahead of the film's sequel, which is set for next September. 

If you're lucky enough to catch HTC's "tour" for their own VR headset, the Vive, you'll actually be able to play a teaser of the game ahead of the launch. The best chance for that with North American fans will be at PAX Prime in Seattle, August 28th-31st.
