Hellboy: Web Of Wyrd revealed at the 2022 Game Awards

A new Hellboy game revealed at the 2022 Game Awards is on the way. Hellboy: Web of Wyrd is an original Hellboy story starring Lance Reddick as Hellboy himself. Mike Mignola, the legendary comic artist and writer best known for creating Hellboy, is associated with the project, although his role in the development is yet to be announced.

While not much has been revealed about Hellboy: Web of Wyrd, it appears to be an action game set in a world that shares the same style as Mike Mignola’s iconic comics.

Developed for comic book publisher Dark Horse Comics in 1993, Hellboy follows a half-demon who was summoned to Earth as a child. But despite its rugged appearance and dark origin story, the Behemoth uses its supernatural powers to fight against dark and supernatural forces.

While it has yet to be confirmed, Wyrd could be a reference to another Dark Horse series of the same name. The short-lived series followed the invincible Pitnor Weird, a fellow paranormal investigator who the United States reportedly turned to when things got a little, well, weird. However, given the series’ below-average performance for the publisher, that doesn’t seem particularly likely.

A release date for Hellboy: World of Wyrd has yet to be announced. However, the listing revealed that the upcoming title will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
