What’s additionally attention-grabbing about Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth is that it's being developed by Annapurna Interactive itself, who has solely printed video games up till this level. This marks a primary for Annapurna’s inside studio, and I look ahead to seeing what it manages to prepare dinner up; hopefully, we'll be embarking on a sci-fi noir journey, very like the movies.
