Isle of Man-based casino games developer, Microgaming, has announced they will be developing a new game title based on the 1978 classic horror film, Halloween. The announcement comes after Microgaming signed a licensing agreement with Compass International Pictures, brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation.

Based on the 1978 American independent slasher film, directed by John Carpenter and featuring a six year old boy, Michael Myers, who murders his sister and then returns to his old town fifteen years later to continue his killing spree, the game will have you on the edge of your seat.

“We are excited to team up with Creative Licensing and Microgaming to bring Michael Myers and Halloween home to all of our loyal fans in the best possible ways through top licensees who create products we feel honour the character, film and franchise,” stated Ryan Freimann, senior vice president of Compass.

The game will feature iconic characters from the film, together with the unique music soundtrack. Currently being developed, Halloween slot is scheduled for release later in the year.

“Halloween is a true classic and set the standard for modern horror films,” commented David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming. “It was immeasurably influential in the slasher genre of movies, so it is great to be working with such an iconic and respected brand. Embracing all the elements of what made the movie such a success, our games team are busy developing a slot for release later in the year.”

Halloween is expected to become a popular addition to the Microgaming suite of games which includes a range of popular branded titles, such as the most recent Jurassic World, as well as Jurassic Park, Bridesmaids, Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight, Terminator, Tarzan, Tomb Raider and many more.
