Titled Julius Styles: The International, Snipes announced that the game, which will be made available for the iPhone, iPad, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, “was inspired by my desire to bring my Art of War, Murder at 1600 and Passenger 57 characters into the game world."

Due to land on iOS devices this June with console-bound editions to follow, Snipes, who declared: "I love games that challenge my mind and reflexes”, has announced be believes the upcoming release will appeal to the "mind game strategist and the kick-ass special ops warrior lover".

He added: "Julius Styles pits your street knowledge survival skills with your academic intellect and spiritual intuition." The game is to be developed by Lapland Studio with further backing coming from Red 27 and Elstree Studio Productions.
