JJ Abrams is teaming up with Shadow Complex developer Chair on a game set in the world of espionage, called Spyjinx. It will be out sometime in 2016.

Star Trek and Star Wars director JJ Abrams is set to work with Infinity Blade and Shadow Complex developer Chair on a game called Spyjinx.

Spyjinx's official blurb says that the game features "a unique mix of action strategy gameplay, dynamic world building and RPG character development – all set in a thrilling, treacherous world of espionage."

It will initially be released on PC and mobile devices in 2016, though Chair hopes that this will expand to "everywhere that you play games."

Interested players can sign up to be a part of the closed beta, which will take place at some point in the future.

Geoff Keighley sat down with JJ Abrams and Chair's Donald Mustard. They keep their cards pretty close to their chests, but there are some hints dropped and they explain why they wanted to work together and how the partnership came about.
