Amazon Prime’s God of War TV series, like The Last of Us HBO show, will retain the video game franchise‘s values while expanding it in such a way that those who aren’t familiar with the games will still be able to enjoy the show. At least that’s what Sony Pictures TV Studios president Katherine Pope has promised.
God of War TV series is in early stages
Pope told Deadline that Amazon’s God of War show is still in the early stages of production, so don’t expect it to release until the end of next year, at the very least. That said, Pope is “impressed” by the work that’s been done so far, and said that the team is hard at work on building and expanding the world for the TV series.
“I’m so impressed with what they’re already doing in terms of building out that world and expanding, keeping all the values of the game but also expanding it so that if you don’t know the game, it’s still going to be a really satisfying show on its own,” Pope said. “I think people somehow think it’s an easier job to develop IP but, in many ways, it’s harder than coming up with an original idea.”
If the production values are anything like HBO’s The Last of Us, fans are in for a treat!
