Every now and then I've got to throw one to the gamers. The new and improved Bloody-Disgusting broke the news yesterday that Brash Entertainment's Saw video game will somehow be tied directly into Saw V, which is set to hit theaters on October 24.
It sounds like this decision was made while the game was being produced, since apparently the makers--who specialize in film-based releases--attempted to get it ready in time for the new sequel's release, but were unsuccessful. The game will instead come out sometime in 2009. It's not clear how it will be tied in, but one thing that is known is that Saw V's screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are not involved in the project.
