Big Fish, the indie studio behind the critically acclaimed Blackout, announced Wednesday that it has acquired rights to “Blackout” for $10 million, with an undisclosed upfront payment.
The game’s creators say that they intend to release it exclusively through Amazon Prime Video, but the publisher declined to confirm details.
“Blackout is a classic black and white racing game,” the team wrote on Twitter.
“It’s the first time a AAA studio has ever brought this iconic game to a platform that offers so much.”
Amazon is currently the only major digital video store with an active Blackout sale, and it’s one of several major titles that have sold well beyond the initial release window.
The game’s publisher, Black Entertainment, announced in December that it would be relaunching Blackout with the added bonus of allowing its players to download and play it on mobile devices.
“We’re proud to be working with Amazon on the release of ‘Blackouts’ and looking forward to playing it in the coming months,” Big Fish said in a statement.
