Ubisoft Confirms It’s Not Making a Blade Video Game

Ubisoft has confirmed that it will not be making a video game based on Blade, Marvel’s resident vampire slayer. News of a possible solo Blade game first hit the rumor mill when YouTuber JorRaptor spotted an Instagram post by actor Edwin Gaffney, which also featured his colleague Alex Martin in the shot.

Gaffney posted in the description that he had just finished the job, with the hashtags ubisoft, mocap, and performance capture listed below. A second photo showed Gaffney holding a clapperboard that had the production titled “Marvel” and alongside the image of him holding a sword, Joraptor released a video speculating that Ubisoft was working on a Marvel game.

With that theory in the wild, Ubisoft squashed the rumors with a tweet today. “Sorry to cut the rumors short, we’re not making a Blade game, but we can’t wait to see what our friends at Marvel Studios are up to for next year’s movie.” Ubisoft tweeted.

Blade fans will have to wait until 2023 to see the Daywalker back in action. Blade is one of the playable characters in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a tactical RPG developed by studio XCOM Firaxis, and will return to the big screen on November 3, 2023, this time played by Mahershala Ali.

Blade originally rose to fame in the 1998 solo film starring Wesley Snipes as the title character, and he reprized the role in 2002’s Blade II and 2004’s Blade Trinity. The first film garnered tie-in Game Boy and PlayStation games, and Blade II got a PS2 and Xbox game that was considered one of the worst games of the year.
