Legendary Digital Studios and Square Enix are teaming up to create a live-action series based on Life is Strange.
Legendary Digital Studios and Square Enix have announced that they are teaming up to give the episodic, time-traveling adventure Life is Strange its own digital series, to be developed and produced with Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons of dj2 Entertainment.
Life is Strange won the BAFTA for best story, the Peabody Award, the Golden Joystick’s Performance of the Year, the Game Awards Games for Impact Award, and more than 75 Game of the Year awards and listings.
“Life is Strange is one of those rare properties that combines incredibly developed characters and storylines with deeply engaging gameplay,” said Siegel. “It lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Square Enix, DONTNOD Entertainment and dj2 to bring the world of Arcadia Bay to life in an exciting new way.”
“We’re proud and excited to be working alongside Legendary to realise a new version of Arcadia Bay and Blackwell Academy complete with our rich cast of realistic, believable characters and memorable events,” said Jon Brooke, VP Brand and European Marketing at Square Enix. “Now that the first episode of the Life is Strange game is free to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Mac and PC, there’s never been a better time to play or to introduce a friend to the beautiful world of Arcadia Bay.”
No time frame was given, as Legendary Digital Studios, Square Enix and dj2 are currently meeting with potential writers for the adaptation.
