Sony is enjoying enormous success adapting huge PlayStation franchises like The Last of Us to new forms of media, but it’s not limiting its efforts to live action. Speaking as part of an interview on the Official PS Podcast, the head of PS Productions Asad Qizilbash revealed that of its ten projects in production, there’s a “little bit of animation” on the way.
This shouldn’t come as an enormous surprise, as the Japanese giant obviously owns Sony Pictures Animation – the award-winning studio behind movies like Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse – as well as companies like Aniplex and Crunchyroll. It’ll be interesting to see which franchises it picks to get the animated treatment.
Gravity Rush seems like a no-brainer, and it has received anime shorts in the past, but with no future games in production, it’s unlikely it’d pick this. We know Destiny is eager to explore a cross-media strategy – it played a role in Bungie’s decision to partner with PS Studios, after all – so some kind of animated adaption of the sci-fi series has potential, especially after the gigantic success of Arcane.
But what kind of animated series based on PlayStation franchises would you like to see? Let us know in the comments section below.
