Season 2 of Gravity Falls completed initially of 2016 and we’ve heard nothing within the 5 years which have handed since. Creator Alex Hirsch hasn’t given up on the cartoon sequence he created, although. In an interview with Inverse, Hirsch acknowledged he’d love to make a online game starring his beloved characters, though he hasn’t but discovered a dwelling for it.
Hirsch determined to finish the present as soon as season two had completed as he didn’t need it to lose its “original spark”. He additionally wished to give the sequence and its characters a “real conclusion”. As such, the world of Gravity Falls has been absent from tv screens for 5 years, though there was a comedian and journals. He feels a online game would make it possible to inform extra tales throughout the present’s world, having the ability to go “really, really in-depth to the lore of the series” as nicely as embody “new canon that has been in the periphery of the series”.
However, Disney is but to agree to the thought. Gravity Falls is a Disney IP, and the corporate “don’t seem super savvy about video games right now” in accordance to Hirsch. The essential drawback is Disney shut down the vast majority of their sport studios after the demise of Disney Infinity 3.0, and their most up-to-date titles have discovered a dwelling on cellular units or as browser video games (or as licensed properties, within the case of the Disney owned Star Wars and Marvel). If Hirsch owned the Gravity Falls IP, he would “pair up with a sick indie studio” to make the best sport.
Of course, Gravity Falls has already had a online game within the type of Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets on Nintendo 3DS, launched whereas the present was nonetheless airing. The sport was developed by Ubisoft and was a results of Disney licensing its property out to different builders, a transfer they’re making an attempt to deal with at current. This method has to this point been fairly profitable, with video games like Marvel’s Spider-Man turning into the fastest selling superhero game within the US. They’re nonetheless searching for more companies to create video video games from their properties, which is probably going the rationale why EA no longer has exclusivity over the Star Wars franchise. Maybe Hirsch simply wants to discover the precise studio to develop the sport for Disney to agree on the licensed title.
