Lionsgate and Kabam agreed to make a mobile game of "The Hunger Games" that will be available for play purposes on smart phones and tablets.
Kabam is a San Francisco-based interactive entertainment company that is renowned for making free-to-play mobile games.
"Lionsgate has an unparalleled track record of developing and producing blockbuster movie franchises like 'The Hunger Games,'" Kabam CEO Kent Wakeford said.
"Partnering with Lionsgate, Kabam will build a mobile game that's as much fun to play as the movie is to watch."
Kabam's China studio, which already developed "The Hobbit" mobile game, will develop this game too. Kabam is going to make "The Hunger Games" which is a story of a futuristic society that stages televised death matches among youth.
In Kabam's Hunger Games mobile game, players will play the roles of District members. These players will align and liberate themselves in the same way as the spirit of the story told in the books on which the actual Hunger Games film is based.
"We are so pleased to be working with Kabam to give the fans an experience like they have never had before," said Lionsgate executive vice president of digital media Danielle DePalma.
"Being able to role-play with the mentors straight from the world of 'The Hunger Games' will let fans feel as if they are in the middle of the action."
The first two installments of the "Hunger Games" films starring Jennifer Lawrence have earned revenue of more than $1.5 billion at box offices worldwide. The next installment of the film series will be released in November.
