John Wick Hex Takes Aim At Nintendo Switch And Xbox One In December

After debuting on PC via the Epic Games Store in October 2019 and then making its way onto PlayStation 4 back in May, action strategy game John Wick Hex is coming to PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on December 4.

Directed by Mike Bithell, John Wick Hex blends deep strategy with the trademark action of the film trilogy that stars Keanu Reeves as the deadly assassin and noted dog lover.

An ESRB listing for the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions of the game was first spotted in April, although Bithell and the game’s publisher, Good Shepherd Entertainment, didn’t confirm at the time that it was headed to other consoles.

Not just an authentic exploration of the split-second life-or-death decision-making that the titular hitman makes between shootouts involving multiple enemies, the game also boasts a cinematic pedigree as the editor of the last John Wick film, 2019’s Chapter 3: Parabellum, provided feedback on Hex’s gameplay mechanics.

GameSpot awarded the game an 8/10 in our original John Wick Hex review, with critic Alessandro Barbosa saying, “It’s a slick and well-oiled game that succeeds in giving you a new, engrossing way to experience John Wick and its signature brand of chaotic action.”
