Lionsgate confirms that they have started development on John Wick 5 and are planning new spin-offs, TV series, and a AAA John Wick game.
John Wick It is one of the biggest success stories of the Lionsgate production company, and they are not going to let it go so easily. John Wick 4 has been the highest grossing of the saga and the one that has received the best reviews (something that seemed difficult due to the quality of the entire saga), and it is only the beginning.
As of now, Lionsgate wants to expand the franchise John Wick in multiple directions: new movies, TV series and video games.
At the last investor meeting, Lionsgate’s CEO first announced his plans to make a AAA video game, saying that “they have interest, and have been submitting proposals.”
This week, in the last presentation of financial results for Q4 2023, Joe Drake, president of Lionsgate Motion Pictures Group confirmed that those plans are still underway, and not only that, they are also thinking about John Wick 5.

“Now we’re moving into the franchise, not just in the AAA video game space, but looking for a regular cadence of spin-offs.”

In June 2024 it will be released Ballerinaa spin-off in theaters starring Ana de Armasbut in which it is expected that the characters of Keanu Reeves and Lance Reddick will also appear, which will be a posthumous premiere for the latter, since he died last March.
As for the video game, there is no news, but by Drake’s words they still intend to do it: it remains to be seen who will do it, and then wait (AAA games, unfortunately, have much longer development times than a movie).
It would not be the first John Wick video game, since it came out years ago John Wick Hexalthough it is very different from what many would expect: it is a strategy game, which allows you to carefully plan all the attacks of John Wick from the creator of Thomas Was Alone, Mike Bithell.
