The Walt Disney Company has explored a new direction to bring back the ‘Tron’ franchise with release of a new videogame titled Tron Run/r.
This move hints revival of the Tron franchise as Disney Interactive has partnered with Sanzaru Games to create the new gaming title and thus bringing the franchise back to life after the plug was pulled on a third Tron movie.
Tron Run/r gives players the chance to run, ride and light disc their way through 32 levels of a redesigned virtual world inspired by the 1982 original Tron and the 2010 follow-up Tron: Legacy.
An early version of the game has been available on Steam since December, with the full version released for Steam and Playstation 4 this week. An Xbox One release will follow soon.
Commenting on the launch, Chris Heatherly, Disney Mobile senior VP and general manager, said, “I want to thank the fans who supported us in Early Access because without you Tron Run/r would not be releasing today.”
He added that the game’s success will help Disney Interactive plant more seeds like this in the future, according to Hollywood Reporter.
