Microids Unveils New Version Of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

This week, Microids revealed that they will be releasing a new version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? for North America and Europe. The game is being developed by Appeal Studios and will be published on all three major consoles and PC. No word as to whether or not there will be a version for PS5 and Xbox One X. The game will feature six of the show's iconic TV sets, as seen in the British, American, French, Spanish, Italian, and German versions of the show. What's more, the question and content will be adapted for each of these markets and will offer more than 2,000 exclusive questions per country. However, that's kind of where the originality tops as there will be a generic host in the chair. So no appearances from the late Regis Philbin, Meredith Vieira, Cedric The Entertainer, or even the new host Jimmy Kimmel. You can read more about the game below as the game will drop in Europe on October 29th and in North America on November 17th.
