Video games and movies are a great love story that has been going on since the late 1990s. A complicated romance. Between movies that are adapted into games simply to promote them. Or video games that are adapted into movies by directors and producers who don’t know much about the video game industry and don’t know the game they’re adapting. The result is often very disappointing.

Yet, movies and video games have a lot in common. Over the years, both media have inspired each other to offer us wonderful experiences.

Fortunately, times have changed in recent years. Video games are really starting to be taken seriously, they are attracting more and more people and they have become the most profitable industry on the planet. With the arrival of streaming platforms, many adaptation projects are starting to see the light of day and are currently being planned.

Discover through this new file, the video game adaptations projects (movies and series) that are in progress on different platforms like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max or Amazon Prime Video. Don’t hesitate to check this article regularly as it will be updated as the months go by!

This was supposed to be the big phenomenon of the year. It was actually a big flop. Before the disaster of the end of the year, CD Projekt and Netflix announced a collaboration for an animated series already planned for 2022.

What we know: Very little information at the moment. We only know that this animated series will be directly inspired by the universe of the game, which will highlight the journey of a street kid who will have to get by in a futuristic city where the inhabitants are obsessed with technology and body modifications. In other words, it will be a direct adaptation of CyberPunk 2077 in series!

Between Ubisoft and Netflix, it’s been a great love story since E3 2019, when this adaptation was announced. Since then, the projects have multiplied, but discretion remains the key word. Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed, Beyond Good & Evil or even The Division, all are announced, but none of them has its shooting date, its release date or its share of information!

What we do know: The movie should be a direct adaptation of the first opus, set in New York City, where a strange virus transmitted by banknotes killed millions of people during Black Friday. It is then that our protagonists go into action to save the remains of the city and its inhabitants. The film is expected to be directed by David Leitch who is responsible for Deadpool 2 and the spin-off Fast and Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.

A rumor that’s been hanging around since late 2020 and may have resurfaced in early 2021. Netflix is reportedly on the trail of The Elder Scrolls for an adaptation on par with The Witcher. At least that’s what insider Daniel Richtman says, who is pretty well informed about the streaming platform’s plans.

It should be said that this year will be the 10th anniversary of the famous The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and that the sixth opus is in development at Bethesda. So it could make sense!
