Report – Branson’s new venture called Virgin Gaming

Virgin’s return to the gaming sector may have a name if a website countdown is any indication.

Virgin Gaming.

Bit of a cheeky name if you ask us, but we’re brimming with innuendos. Always.

MCV has previously reported that a formal reveal of the venture will take place at E3 next month, and the countdown on the site points to a reveal taking place a little over 18-days from now – which points to June 14, day one of E3.

We’d love to be a fly on the wall should Branson walk out on stage himself to divulge the news, because, it’s likely to be very showy.

Maybe he will come down from the ceiling rafters on a suspended platform with a smoke machine filling the room as AC/DC’s “For Those About to Rock” blasts from the speakers.

Maybe there will even be cannon fire in all the right places.

One can dream.
