Three PlayStation franchises getting TV adaptions


Sony announced in an investor briefing earlier today May 26 that three major PlayStation franchises will be getting TV adaptions.

The franchises set to get the TV treatment are the Horizon Series, God of War and Gran Turismo as they join other PlayStation exclusives in being adapted to other media.

This was revealed during a Q&A by Sony president Jim Ryan who revealed that the company was expanding its entertainment adaptations even further.

The Horizon Series is set to find its home on Netflix whose record in adapting video game series is impressive with hits like the Arcane series – which is based on the popular League of Legends game – and the Castlevania anime.

God of War goes to Amazon Studios who are currently working on other video game adaptations including a Fallout TV series from the creators of Westworld and a Mass Effect show.

No announcement has been made on the home of the Gran Turismo show however we do know that it doesn’t really have any characters at all, revolving solely around track racing.

The three games join other PlayStation exclusives including The Last of Us, Uncharted, and Ghost of Tsushima in being adapted to other media, though there’s no inclination as to when these series will be released.
