Gameloft, a leading publisher and developer of digitally distributed video games, announced today (April 28) a worldwide licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution to develop, publish, and distribute the mobile game for the Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ film Sherlock Holmes.

A new portrayal of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous character, “Sherlock Holmes” sends Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his trusted colleague Watson (Jude Law) on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes will fight to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy England.
“Sherlock Holmes is a household name spanning multiple countries and languages. To have this story updated as a modern action film by such premier talent will make the story of Sherlock Holmes more relevant than ever,” said Gonzague de Vallois, senior vice president of Worldwide Publishing, Gameloft. “We are confident our powerhouse development team will capture the spirit of the film for fans and gamers alike.”
Gameloft, says the company, will develop the Sherlock Holmes storyline into a mobile game and distribute it through the company’s network of carriers, partners, and its online store in over 80 countries.
