Known for producing deep narrative adventures centered around characterization and plot development, DONTNOD is no stranger to creating plots that rival some of the film world’s best stories. It makes sense, then, that one of the company’s properties would be optioned for a small-screen adaptation. According to a press release, that’s exactly what Fox 21 hopes to accomplish.

In a partnership between DONTNOD and Fox 21, DONTNOD’s Vampyr is set to make its way from the digital realm to the celluloid space sometime in the near future. As of this writing, there is no firm release date, plot, or casting for the show; all we know is that it’s happening.

DONTNOD hopes the partnership will both excite existing fans of the game but also be a means by which the game will gain new fans. In the press release regarding the television show, DONTNOD’s CEO Oskar Guilbert said he was also excited to see how Fox 21 adapts the game’s narrative for a television audience.

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 Fox 21 will bring out the darkly atmospheric universe of our game into television.”

In June, we said Vampyr was “an Intoxicating vampire RPG,” giving the game high marks for its gameplay and storyline. You can read our full review here.
