The anticipated release date for the upcoming video game ‘Hellboy: Web Of Wyrd’ has been confirmed to be Halloween 2023. Based on the comic book by Mike Mignola, the series follows Hellboy in a third-person “Beat ’em up” video game that will be released on several consoles.
“The new Hellboy video game, Hellboy: Web of Wyrd, finally has a release date, and it’s coming up fast – October 4, to be precise. And along with the announcement of Web of Wyrd’s release date, developers Good Shepherd Entertainment have released a new trailer, highlighting the story of the game, seen above,” Games Rader said on their website. “Look for Hellboy: Web of Wyrd on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch starting October 4.”
Mignola’s distinct art-style was used as inspiration for the game’s visual and he also helped with the narrative. Lance Reddick voiced the title character in one of his final posthumous roles.

Good Shepherd Entertainment describes the synopsis as follows,
“‘Hellboy: Web of Wyrd’ sends Hellboy on a series of vastly different and wholly unique adventures: all tied to the mysterious legacy of The Butterfly House. When an agent of the BPRD is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the mansion and promptly goes missing, it’s up to you – Hellboy – and your team of Bureau agents to find your missing colleague and uncover the secrets of The Butterfly House. Chain together hard-hitting melee and ranged attacks to fight a diverse array of increasingly nightmarish enemies in this incredible new entry in the Hellboy universe.”
Clownfish TV contributor Mike Phalin shared his thoughts on the original trailer when it premiered, saying, “Somehow, the Hellboy: Web of Wyrd gameplay trailer flew under the radar. The game, coming to the XBOX and PS5, features an aesthetic that almost perfectly captures Mike Mignola’s art style. However, the gameplay shown in this trailer leaves much to be desired. Also, the voice chosen for Hellboy is … interesting. To say the trailer for Hellboy: Web of Wyrd was sort of unnoticed is an understatement.”
Hellboy first appeared fully in the 1993 issue of San Diego Comic Con Comics #2 and would appear regularly in the pages of the ‘Next Men.’
