Battlefield could soon be coming to TV.
The video game franchise, which has amassed more than 60 million players worldwide, is getting a television adaption from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, maker Electronic Arts said Monday. While a network is not yet attached, the plan is to bring EA’s first-person shooter game, known for delivering an expansive war experience to the small screen.
“Battlefield has a tremendous built-in, engaged fan base, making it a highly coveted piece of IP primed for long-form adaption,” said Michael Sugar, Anonymous Content partner and an executive producer of the Battlefield adaption. “Together with EA and Paramount TV, we’ll develop the Battlefield TV series with the same commitment to robust storytelling that has made the game such a runaway success for nearly 15 years.”
Anonymous Content has found recent success on TV with their projects such as True Detective and Mr. Robot.
