Two new Doctor Who games have been announced, featuring Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor and David Tennant’s Tenth.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality by Maze Theory builds on 2019’s VR title, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time.”
That will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam, and we await news about which next-gen consoles it’ll also be available on.
The game will continue the story that began in The Edge of Time and will see the player partner with the Thirteenth and Tenth Doctor(s) to uncover a universe-spanning threat and work to save reality from a series of time-breaking glitches. As well as new monsters, fans will meet iconic baddies including the Daleks, Cybermen, and the Weeping Angels.
The latter will also play a key part in Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins (developed by award-winning Malaysian studio Kaigan Games), which will be available on iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch.
Featuring classic characters like Osgood (Ingrid Oliver), The Lonely Assassins will see players uncover and decipher the mystery of a ‘found phone’, unravelling a sinister series of events taking place at Wester Drumlins, which featured in Blink, the first appearance of the Weeping Angels.
Ian Hambleton, CEO of Maze Theory said:
“With our partners at BBC Studios, we are expanding the Doctor Who universe through a ground-breaking trilogy of experiences, now delivered across multiple devices and platforms.

“As part of Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious, we have also delivered an amazing fan-centric update to the VR game Doctor Who: The Edge of Time. These launches reaffirm the studio’s commitment to take players on exciting and unexpected narrative journeys.”
