Fans of 2014’s Keanu Reeves starrer “John Wick” will now have a chance to literally step into the shoes of the lethal hit-man, as a virtual reality video-game based on the film has just been announced. This is probably in promotion for in “John Wick 2,” where Reeves is going to return as the death-dealing assassin. Read on to find out more.
In a recent report to The Verge, “John Wick” producer Lionsgate has announced that they will be collaborating with gaming company Starbreeze to create a “John Wick” game.
The game will be Virtual Reality, and will work with “most existing VR headsets, including the HTC Vive.” Though details are rare, we know that it is going to be a standalone first-person shooter set in “the infamous Continental Hotel.” The Hotel was last seen in the 2014 movie. It served as a mysterious establishment catering to assassins and criminals, with its own ineffable rules and currency system.

“We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original,” Stahelski said.
The sequel a already gotten a new distribution deal with Ascot Elite from Switzerland.
“John Wick” is largely considered one of the best thrillers of 2014, and is also famous for having a ridiculously high number of on screen kills by the eponymous killer, often in hugely inventive ways.
