War for the Planet of the Apes Getting Its Own Video Game

by Damian Seeto


The Planet of the Apes franchise has not been successful in the video game industry, but War for the Planet of the Apes hopes to buck that trend.

Gamespot had a chance to interview Andy Serkis who plays Caesar in War for the Planet of the Apes. He talked briefly about the video game based on the movie.

He said: “I don’t think it’s ever been done before. We created it at the Imaginarium, which is my studio. Without giving too much away about it, it’s not like a first-person shooter. It feels like an interactive movie. And that’s all I can say other than that it will be coming out around the same time as the movie. It’s a companion piece, it’s not based on the characters from this movie

Serkis also confirmed that the game is coming to consoles so it won’t be just a cheap mobile title. This is good news since a lot of Hollywood movies these days just opt to release a mobile only video game.

The fact that Serkis called it an “interactive movie” means the War for the Planet of the Apes could be something like Heavy Rain or a title released by Telltale. There’s no release date, but the movie will be out on July 14, 2017.
