The recently released Vampyr game has got the attention of most of the gaming enthusiasts making it one of the highest selling titles of the year. Now the cable network FOX has decided to make a live-action television series based on the game.
The idea actually seems perfect as the game’s story is winding and clever. It shows early 1900’s London grim and dark. The series still seems quite shady as no proper details of the game have yet been revealed including the release date.
Here’s what Dontnod, Focus Home Interactive, and DJ2 Entertainment have to say regarding the project.
DONTNOD CEO Oskar Guilbert:
We believe it is a fantastic premise for a television show. This is a new and exciting way for fans of the game, as well as the uninitiated, to enter and engage with VAMPYR’S rich, deep story. We cannot wait to see how the talented team at FOX21 will bring out the darkly atmospheric universe of our game into television.
Focus Home Interactive CEO Jurgen Goeldner says:
We are delighted to partner with FOX21 for the adaptation of VAMPYR into a TV series. DONTNOD has created a uniquely dark, immersive world with deep narration, which has made VAMPYR already a modern video game classic. We cannot wait to see FOX21 bring all of their talent and experience in launching a TV show that will allow an even wider audience to discover the fantastic universe of VAMPYR.
DJ2 CEO, Dmitri Johnson said:
The DJ2 team loves the creative vision DONTNOD & Focus devote to all of their projects. The great relationship we’ve built with them since partnering on their incredible game, LIFE IS STRANGE, allowed us to get on board for VAMPYR well before its release. Like them, we’re excited to collaborate with our friends at FOX21, Wonderland, and the rest of the creative team we’re assembling.
