“The Chaosverse brings a whole new dimension to Doctor Who

Ian Hambleton, CEO of Maze Theory spoke about their latest project. “With our partners at BBC Studios, we are giving Doctor Who fans and gamers an incredible new experience through space and time.

“The appearance of both the Thirteenth and Tenth Doctors is set to be an epic event. The ‘Chaosverse’ is a mind-blowing new concept, which brings a whole new dimension to the Doctor Who experience.

This much anticipated console/PC launch follows the incredible success of the mobile game Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins and re-affirms our commitment to take players on the most unexpected and immersive narrative journeys.”


Kevin Jorge, Senior Producer – Games & Interactive for BBC Studios is pleased to see Doctor Who return to console gaming. “We’re really excited to bring Doctor Who back to console and to give players the chance to be the centre of a new Doctor Who adventure. We’re always striving to bring the Doctor Who universe to life in unique and interesting ways, tell new stories and give fans the chance to be part of their own adventure and I believe we’ve done that with The Edge of Reality.

We really hope that fans and those new to Doctor Who alike, will enjoy helping the Doctor in this epic adventure.”
