SCi Entertainment announced today that it has signed a deal to produce computer games based on the Highlander franchise. SCi will work with franchise creators Peter Davis and Bill Panzer to develop computer games set in the world of the popular film and TV series.
Highlander began life as a 1986 film starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery, and has since expanded to include three more films and a long-running television series. A successful trading-card game and large online fan base suggest that a video game version would be a good fit. While no details on the game's release window have been released, Davis and Panzer have said that they hope the game will be "an integral part" of the franchise's 20th-anniversary celebration in 2006.
