The dark and gritty world Hunt: Showdown is all set to be adapted into a live-action series in a partnership between Crytek and Binge. Binge is an upcoming gaming entertainment streaming platform and they are adding Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown live-action series into the list of their launch content.
The story of the game is set in the year 1895, and it takes the players to the darkest corners of the world where there is no lack of threats to their lives. The competitive first-person bounty hunting game has the thrills of a survival game into a match-based format. The game has earned great amounts of community support and has even the Best Online Experience Award at The Game Awards 2020.
Binge’s Allan Ungar and Vince Talenti are set to produce the series with Crytek’s Avni Yerli, Faruk Yerli, and Pascal Tonecker serving as the executive producer on the series.
Avni Yerli, Crytek founder, and joint CEO released this statement on the news:
“We have always known that Hunt: Showdown would look great as a live-action series, the world is dark, gritty, and immersive, and there is so much potential for many great stories to be told. We can’t wait to see what the team at Binge can create.”
Ungar added to the statement by saying that, “We’re incredibly excited to partner with Crytek on this series. New players are constantly discovering Hunt: Showdown and falling in love with its bold and unique world, and we can’t wait for fans to see what we anticipate will be the first of many collaborations with Crytek.”
The series will be a Binge original and it is slated ahead of its 2022 launch. Binge is also adapting Nightdive Studios’ System Shock and Ubisoft’s Driver into live-action series and has also joined hands with Youtuber El Rubius for his upcoming series Rubius Checkpoint. Hunt: Showdown will be streaming exclusively on Binge upon its release.
