Funko announced its first foray into the AAA video game market with a new project in collaboration with newly established development studio 10:10 Games.
Now, it seems Funko is going beyond just making merchandise of existing game properties and will be making one of its own.
Funko announced a collaboration with 10:10 Games to create its own video game surrounding Funko Freddy, the Funko brand mascot.

Funko announced the project on Twitter, with a brief teaser trailer showing a render of Freddy Funko in motion.
The trailer itself introduces Freddy, who happens to be wearing a 10:10 Games shirt, reacting to the news that the two companies are collaborating on a new game.
The end of the trailer teases more information to come, with Freddy trapped in a Funko Pop box with the caption above the box that reads “Unboxing soon…”
Unfortunately, that’s all Funko has revealed about the game at the moment, but there is a bit more information fans can gather from 10:10 Games’ official website.
According to the website, the game will be a “AAA Action Platformer” set to release in 2023.
The project is reportedly helmed by Jon Burton, a video game developer veteran and “five-time BAFTA award winner.”
As for what platforms this new Funko Pop game is aiming for, it seems 10:10 games is aiming to release on current and new-gen consoles as well as PC.
10:10 Games itself is an extremely new studio, “founded in the Summer of 2021 by industry veterans…with a vision to create a studio that is inclusive, collaborative, and welcoming for everyone.”
Fans interested in the project will have to keep their eyes on Funko and 10:10 Games for more information about this new action platformer.
