Apex Legends fans could be in for a treat as Respawn Entertainment has hinted at the battle royale title being made into a TV series.
Since its release Apex Legends has gone from strength to strength and seems it as no intention of slowing down any time soon as Respawn Entertainment hint as a potential TV series for the hit title.
This would make sense as we have recently saw a host of other popular video games making the leap to the big screen such as Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, The Witcher and The Last of Us.
The news came during an Ask Me Anything on Reddit when the Director of Community and Communications at Respawn, Ryan K. Rigney was questioned if a a “Netflix/Amazon Prime Tv series” could ever be a possibility.
Rigney then gave fans a cryptic hint as he posted an emoji with its mouth zipped closed, of course this doesn’t give us any concrete information but it definitely gives fans something to think about.
Recently we have seen a huge boost in the numbers of live-action video game making the jump to film, not only did we see Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat reboot but there was also Eli Roth’s Borderlands which featured some huge hollywood names.
Apex Legends could quite comfortably be transformed into a movie however in order to reap the benefits of a great cast we could argue that a series could work out in their favour.
There is also the question of what route the adaptation would go down, would we see this come into fruition as live-action or an animation?
Of course, an animated series would be the easier choice, you can’t help but imagine the possible all star case that a live-action adaptation could bring to the table.
I guess we will just have to hang on and see if we get our wish for a Apex Legends TV series, in the meantime be sure to check back with us at Gamerficial for the latest news and updates.
