Unreal Engine 5 Breaking Bad Game Needs To Happen

Unreal Engine 5 Breaking Bad Game Needs To Happen

Say his name... Heisenberg is back. Despite it being nine years since Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad left us a quivering mess in "Felina", the franchise is far from dead. Walter White might've shuffled off this mortal coil, but with spin-off series Better Call Saul currently airing its final season, we're putting our pork pie hats back on for one more rodeo.

It's unclear whether the Badverse will continue beyond Better Call Saul, but one way we could see the gang back together would be a Breaking Bad video game. It might sound like an unusual idea, but looking at how popular Grand Theft Auto is, it's easy to imagine a GTA-inspired Breaking Bad game where you try to run your own meth empire. Well, imagine no more. 

What Is The Unreal Engine 5 Breaking Bad Game?

As Epic Games ploughs all its efforts into Unreal Engine 5, it's over to the creative community to show what we're missing out on. Using The Matrix Awakens demo as a jumping-off point, we've already seen developers create their own dream Superman game using the "City Sample" assets pack. Unreal is where the industry is heading, and if this prototype Breaking Bad game is anything to go by, it needs to become a reality... now. 

TeaserPlay's trailer opens with Walt's iconic "say my name" confrontation in Season 5, before we dive into gameplay. Leaning into the GTA comparisons, we drive around Albuquerque in the infamous RV that Walt and Jesse turned into a mobile meth lab. There are various quotes from the series, intercut with shots of us driving around (presumably) as Walt. The concept appears to let you flip between playing as Jesse and Walt in a similar fashion to GTA V having Franklin, Michael, and Trevor as playable protagonists. 

We'll admit that it's not perfect, as the Unreal Engine 5 version of Dean Norris' Hank Shrader looks a little janky. Also, the eyes of Aaron Paul Jesse Pinkman look a little big for his head. At least the trailer nails the look of Walter White, with a near-perfect new-gen version of Bryan Cranston. 

 

Has There Been A Breaking Bad Game Before?

An Unreal Engine 5 Breaking Bad game went down a storm as fans couldn't get enough of it. One champion cheered, "A game based on that would be a mix between a Harry Potter game (imagine mixing chemicals to make meth!) and Max Payne in his 50s! Guess EA Games and Rockstar should start a joint project after seeing this!" Another added, "Ngl, an open world AAA game set in the Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul universe would be f*****g bonkers amazing." 

While you can barely move for video games based on AMC's The Walking DeadBreaking Bad has largely been confined to the lab. In 2019, FTX Games released Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements as a mobile strategy game that let you build your own criminal empire. It wasn't exactly a hit, meaning it closed just over a year later. With Better Call Saul coming to an end and it looking like Cranston and Paul are stopping by for a cameo, there couldn't be a better time for a proper Breaking Bad game.
