Invincible Video Games Are Officially in Development

Video games based on the popular superhero series Invincible are officially in development, Skybound Entertainment announced. Thanks to the popularity of the 2021 animated television series from Amazon Prime, it managed to find mainstream success. Skybound is now looking to expand Invincible to new mediums and that includes video games.

Based on the Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, Invincible was first published in 2003 and concluded in 2018 with 144 issues. It tells the story of teenager Mark Grayson who is bestowed with incredible superpowers. He is guided by his father, Omni-Man, who is widely regarded as the most powerful superhero on the planet. Mark struggles to balance his superhero duties with his personal life.

Skybound Entertainment recently revealed that, in celebration of Invincible‘s 20th anniversary, it will be re-releasing various comics along with “apparel, collectibles, tabletop games, video games, and more.” The video game part is interesting as it seemingly confirms that Skybound has plans to make a video game (or many games) based on Invincible.

Invincible could actually translate well into video game format as it’s known for hyper-violent action, superhero themes and strong family drama. An open-world game in the style of Marvel’s Spider-Man or the Batman Arkham series might be more fitting, though we’re also open to a violent fighting game in the style of Mortal Kombat.

While no specific Invincible video game was actually announced, it’s safe to assume that Skybound is now looking for potential developers to work on this project. With the second and third season of the animated series already renewed at Amazon, it will surely continue to be one of the more popular mature superhero shows on television next to The Boys. A video game – made by the right developer, of course – would only complement the series.
