Gameloft has announced it has licensed Dungeons & Dragons from Wizards of the Coast, the IP-holder and a division of Hasbro, to publish a new PC and console game developed by its Montreal Studio, creator of Disney Dreamlight Valley, LEGO Star Wars Castaways and several games within the Dungeon Hunter series. 

The game, set in the mythical Forgotten Realms within the Dungeons & Dragons universe, will bring cooperative gameplay built around an innovative hybrid of survival, life simulation and action RPG. Players can expect an adventure where the rich lore of this legendary franchise meets real-time survival in a campaign of resilience, camaraderie and danger at nearly every turn. 

“We are honored to partner with Wizards of the Coast to deliver a completely new experience in the Dungeons & Dragons universe,” says Lee Kaburis, executive producer, Gameloft Montreal. “We are all big fans of D&D and are already hard at work bringing our concept to life, including growing our team, and we look forward to sharing more details in the future.” 

“Making friends, both on and off the table, has always been a core Dungeons & Dragons value and it is our goal, as lifelong fans, to bring this experience to a different genre renowned for emergent gameplay and shared narrative that can be enjoyed by both newcomers and tabletop masters alike,” says Marc-Andre Deslongchamps, creative director, Gameloft Montreal.
