Fox21 has recently secured the rights to DONTNOD entertainment and Focus Home Interactive’s fantasy RPG, Vampyr.
Vampyr originally debuted on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and reached the number one spot on Steam.
DONTNOD Entertainment's CEO Oskar Guilbert stated "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’ CEO Jurgen Goeldner followed up with a statement saying “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.”
Vampyr is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
