Xbox’s Grounded is getting its own animated series

Grounded joins the growing list of video games getting television and film adaptations. Deadline reports that a Grounded animated series is in the works from developer Obsidian Entertainment, Xbox, Waterproof Studios/SC Productions, Kinetic Media and Bardel Entertainment.

Developed by Obsidian, Grounded is a cooperative online multiplayer game focused on kids shrunk to the size of insects. The kids must work together to survive all the horrors in the backyard including spiders, ants and other creatures. The game has been in Early Access for years and will finally get a version 1.0 this September.

According to the report, the series will exist in the same universe as the game and will follow four friends who discover a shrinking technology that makes them two inches tall. As they struggle to survive in the backyard, they also uncover a corporate conspiracy that threatens their hometown.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman is accompanying the adaptation. Brien Goodrich, who previously worked on the Halo video game series, is set to direct.

Another adaptation of an Xbox property, Grounded joins the likes of this year’s Halo television show, which has already been renewed for a second season. As for other properties from Microsoft, we know adjustments for Minecraft, Fallout, and more are in the works.
