Dog, The Bounty Hunt, is getting his series of video games, for some reason.
What was your gaming-related bingo card in 2022? Are you hoping to see Prime 4 ? Do you dream of a trailer for the Elder Scrolls VI? It’s unlikely that a series featuring Dog the Bounty Hunter will be on your list of hopes, dreams, and expectations. But that’s exactly what you’re getting. It’s a great time to be alive.
In a press release, Duane Chapman announced that he had signed a new contract that would allow him to lend his identity and likeness to make games. By the way, that’s games plural. This is not a one-off, strange, or unique gaming debut. The statement clarifies that this is for multiple video games.
Virtual Interactive Technologies Corp. is the company that this deal is made. They have released their plans in a press release. They plan to “develop and market video games in collaboration with the production entity” and use Mr. Chapman’s name, image, and likeness for the promotion, sale, and advertisement of the games. Huh.
“After many years of sharing my story on television, it’s a joy to be able to share my stories and experience in the video game environment. Chapman said that he was thrilled to work with Virtual Interactive Technologies’ experienced team.
Jason Garber, CEO at Virtual Interactive Technologies, stated that “Collaborating With Dog and His Team to Help Create Unique Experiences for Our Customers is a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity.” “Dog’s success in reality TV and his well-known persona will give us exceptional content to create a variety of engaging and exciting games.”
There’s a lot of information to be absorbed here, and it’s all quite confusing. For starters, the Dog the Bounty Hunter show ceased airing in 2012. It’s been a while since we last saw Chapman, so it’s an odd time to catch up with him considering his peak popularity. It remains to be seen how successful these “exciting games” will be. However, I have to admit that they have piqued our interest. Let’s keep an eye on this.
