GameCo to launch trio of Terminator 2 casino games this year

Gaming specialist GameCo is to develop a trio of new casino games based on the iconic science fiction film, Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

The new launch is the result of a partnership with the Terminator franchise owner, Studiocanal S.A.S. and will see the games land across the US by the end of the year.

The first title planned is a first-person action game in which players will take the role of a reprogrammed T-800 with a mission to aid the human resistance by exterminating opposing Terminators.

The deal was brokered by Creative Licensing.

“It’s exciting to introduce our celebrated film titles to fans and casino players in an engaging and interactive format,” said Rand Marlis, president and CEO of Creative Licensing.

“GameCo’s VGM brings films to life in an updated arcade format, whereby players have fun with a chance of winning big money.”

Rich Maryyanek, head of global business development for GameCO, added: “T2 is a world famous classic film known for action, visual effects and memorable characters, so it’s a great fit for the fast-paced experience we want to bring to casinos across the globe.

“We are excited to be working with Studiocanal and CLC to bring the Terminator 2 brand to our video game gambling machines.”
