Turning games into TV shows and movies is all the rage nowadays, with PlayStation Productions at the forefront of the push. We've already seen Uncharted perform impressively in the cinema, and next year it'll be the turn of The Last of Us on streaming services. One more TV adaptation of a game series that has just been announced is A Plague Tale, from Asobo Studio.
According to French outlet Allocine, there had been some interest in the IP from production houses based in the US, but they were passed on to ensure the series could stick to its roots. Director Mathieu Turi (Inglorious Basterds, Rosemary's Baby, Lucy) has some involvement in the project, tweeting out his excitement about working on the TV adaptation.
Coincidentally, the French director also seems to be a bit of a PlayStation fan. Upon the release of Horizon Forbidden West, Turi tweeted about playing the game on PS5. He's certainly got good taste, then.
As for what's happening with the games, A Plague Tale: Requiem is still slated for a PS5 release later this year. A new screenshot was actually shared by publisher Focus Entertainment yesterday. Were you a fan of PS5, PS4 title A Plague Tale: Innocence, and would you be interested in this TV adaptation? Let us know in the comments below.
