Sony is taking steps to expand some of its biggest video game franchises with TV show adaptations. During Sony’s latest earnings presentation Q&A, the company announced three new shows.
As analyst David Gibson relayed, a God of War TV series is coming to Amazon, while a Horizon series is in the works for Netflix. A Gran Turismo TV show is also in the works, but Sony hasn’t announced a service or network for it. In May 2021, a Sony spokesperson confirmed that a God of War TV series was not happening, but plans can always change, as they have now.
GameSpot has followed PlayStation in an attempt to get more details on the newly announced shows.
Sony IR – 3 positives in presentation 1) Horizon (Netflix), God of War (Amazon) and Gran Turismo in TV development 2) 2 live service games coming in FY3/23 are not Destiny and 3) PC gaming revenue will grow 3.8x in FY3/23 (which I believe is for live service gaming) #sony

All of these shows will be produced in part by PlayStation Productions, Sony’s business unit responsible for bringing PlayStation games to television and cinema. Sony said in May 2021 that it has 10 TV shows/movies based on its games in the works, and these three additional properties are in addition to the existing ones we know of.
They include the recently released Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland, as well as Chad Stahelski’s upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie from John Wick, HBO’s The Last of Us series, and the Bob’s Burgers writers’ show Twisted Metal.
Assuming the number is still 10 for TV shows/movies based on PlayStation properties that are currently in the works, there are still at least three more that we don’t know about. Keep checking with GameSpot for the latest news.
