PlayStation boss Herman Hulst said collaborating with FromSoftware on a film or TV show is “not out of the question”, meaning a screen adaptation of the Elden Ring, Dark Souls or Bloodborne could be on the horizon.
Hulst told Reuters that while developing games will always be a priority, Sony’s recent investment in FromSoftware could also lead to opportunities beyond gaming, even with its film and TV company PlayStation Productions.
“You should think primarily about collaborations on the game development side,” he said of FromSoftware’s investment. “But it’s also not unthinkable that we’re exploring possibilities in our efforts with PlayStation Productions.”
FromSoftware hasn’t been shy when it comes to customization either, especially following the success of Elden Ring. It’s been adapted into a manga (that’s a comedy, oddly enough), and just last month an official board game was announced.
Sony is currently stepping up movies and TV, but so far has only made adjustments based on its own first-party IP, with Tom Holland and Mark Walberg’s Uncharted film launching earlier this year.
A Gran Turismo movie starring David Harbor from Stranger Things is on the way, alongside a Ghost of Tsushima movie, another Gravity Rush movie from director Anna Mastro (who owns the Secret Society of Second Born Royals) and a Days Gone adaptation.
