Orange Comet, a next-gen gaming and entertainment company, has announced a collaboration with Universal Products & Experiences to bring “JAWS,” the 1975 film from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, to a new audience through an immersive experience, “JAWS: Infested Waters.”  

Currently in soft launch, the experience unfolds on Roblox. The “JAWS: Infested Waters” experience is designed to offer a multifaceted experience that combines elements of strategy, teamwork and action.  

“‘JAWS’ is a one-of-a-kind film that generations of fans love to watch – and be terrified by – together,” says Bill Kispert, senior vice president, games and digital platforms, Universal Products & Experiences. “This led us to explore a unique, multiplayer experience filled with frightening fun and unexpected twists above and below the surface. We look forward to Roblox users having a blast with their friends in this action-packed social game that really packs a bite.” 

“I would say we’re kicking and screaming with excitement, but that might attract sharks,” says Dave Broome, chief executive officer, Orange Comet. “It’s truly an honor to work on a game inspired by one of the most iconic film franchises ever created. We’re thrilled to bring  JAWS: Infested Waters’ to Roblox, where fans can enjoy an entirely new immersive experience inspired by the film.”
