As reported by Industry Gamers, Games Investor Consulting analyst Nick Gibson has come out as saying that the lack of a Twilight video game on the market (apparently Scene It? Twilight on the Wii doesn’t count) is a lost opportunity for massive profits.
Twilight, which has seen an explosion in popularity due to two blockbuster films and the subsequent rise in popularity of the series’ novels, may not present itself as a perfect model for the average, action-based video game, but Gibson still sees great potential in the property.
“Given how hot a property it is, [a Twilight video game] could easily present a seven-figure exploitation opportunity, especially if publishers consider taking it beyond retail gaming and considers network gaming,” said Gibson. “It may well be that the rights holders aren’t aware of the potential benefits because they haven’t explored the games market before.”
