The Boondocks Saints game hasn’t been officially announced but that isn’t stopping details from leaking into the world. Critical Mass Interactive is developing the title as a “full-on co-op shooter” for the PC, Xbox 360 and possibly the PS3, CEO Matt Scibilia told G4.
Scibilia wants to release the game as a full retail product but may change that to an episodic, downloadable title. “We don’t want to do a crap-ass franchise game,” Scribilia said. “We’re staying true to the content. We’re looking to expand the story, not just retell the franchise.
“The Boondock Saints characters are so strong – the banter, the relationships between Rocco and the brothers, the Catholicism, that will all be featured in the game.”
More details are set to release at SXSW’s ScreenBurn Arcade series on Sunday, March 11 in Austin, where Critical Mass Interactive will join members of the original cast. The developer is planning on showing the game of in secret sessions at PAX East in April, and will reveal it for a wider audience at E3.
