Doctor Who: The Edge of Time will be turned into a cross-platform gaming trilogy in early 2021, launching on smartphones, PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Digital entertainment studio, Maze Theory, is expanding its Doctor Who work with three games creating a trilogy of experiences, the first of which was Doctor Who: The Edge of Time VR game which launched in November 2019.

Maze Theory also plans to extend its forthcoming VR game Peaky Blinders – The King’s Ransom, when it launches in 2021, bringing it to additional platforms and devices.
Maze Theory CEO, Ian Hambleton, says:
“Maze Theory is evolving to the next level. We know from feedback that fans of shows like Doctor Who and Peaky Blinders crave new and exciting experiences across multiple devices and interwoven stories that create an overall experience far surpassing that of a single game.

These investments and our new content initiatives enable us to grow our fanbase and drive our business forward. We remain as committed as ever to delivering brilliant gaming experiences.”
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is currently only available on PlayStation 4, but it’s great news that more fans will get to enjoy Doctor Who video games on different platforms from early 2021.
