Wholesale PlayStation games are turning into movies and series – here are all the projects in the works

PlayStation Productions is a production company founded by Sony Interactive Entertainment, which focuses on working on films and series from various PlayStation games.

The line of work started in 2019 seems to be bearing fruit, as the first movie has been seen ( Uncharted, which has been in limbo for a long time) and the first series will arrive for viewing next year ( The Last of Us ). And that’s not all, because a lot of other PlayStation games will also end up in the same treatment in the coming years.

Attached is a list of upcoming PlayStation Productions productions.

The Last of Us (series)

The closest to release is the series of the same name based on The Last of Us games. The epic coming to HBO will bring the apocalyptic world to life next year, although the exact date is not yet clear.

The main stars of the series, which has been seen many times in the news of our website, are Pedro Pascal ( Narcos, The Mandalorian ) as Joel and Bella Ramsey ( Game of Thrones ) as Ellie. Other roles include Gabriel Luna ( Terminator: Dark Fate ) as Tommy Miller and Nick Offerman ( Parks and Recreations ) as Bill. Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, who acted as voice actors in the games themselves, are also involved in some sort of roles, about which there is no more detailed information yet.

Twisted Metal (series)

The Twisted Metal games, which serve car action and total destruction, will be made into a series for the Peacock service. The shooting of the series is going on for the best time.

Starring Anthony Mackie ( The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ) as John Doe, Stephanie Beatriz ( Brooklyn 99 ) as Quiet, Thomas Haden Church ( Sideways ) as Agent Stone and Richard Cabral ( American Crime ) Loud role. The iconic Sweet Tooth of the games features the wrestler Samoa Joe on screen, but the character is voiced by Will Arnett.

Gran Turismo (movie and maybe also series)

According to current information, a film based on the Gran Turismo car games is coming out in 2023, directed by Neill Blomkamp, who directed films such as District 9, Elysium and Chappie. The plot description says that the film focuses on a teenage Gran Turismo player who, after winning several Nissan competitions, ends up a racing car driver. The story is based on true events.

In addition, there have also been rumors about the series, but The Hollywood Reporter website has said that these rumors are not true. Time will tell.

Ghost of Tsushima (film)

The game, set in feudal Japan, is being made into a movie. The work is directed by Chad Stahelski, a former stuntman who has directed all the John Wick films so far. Sucker Punch-studio acts as the responsible producer, so the end result is possible to follow the events of the game. Takashi Doscher was announced earlier this year to be penning the script.

God of War (series)

Kratos’ adventures will eventually be available to watch in serial form on Amazon Prime Video. Much else concrete is not clear yet. So it is still unclear who will play the dark god and whether the story will take place in the landscapes of Greek or Norwegian fairy tales.

Horizon (series)

Based on the games Horizon: Zero Dawn and Horizon: Forbidden West, the Horizon 2074 series is in the works. The epic set in the time before the events of the games will eventually arrive on Netflix, but that’s where the information remains at this point.

Jak and Daxter (movie)

In February of this year, a movie based on the Jak and Daxter games was said to be in the works. There is not much information about the project, except that the project is led by Ruben Fleischer, who directed the Uncharted movie, with the help of Naughty Dog studio.


Uncharted (movie, maybe?)

The first film starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg was a financial hit, so it would be downright strange if there wasn’t a sequel. However, no official or even unofficial confirmation has yet been heard about Nathan Drake’s, Sully’s and partners’ new ventures.

The productions will hardly stop here. What other PlayStation game would make a movie?

“Sophy”: Gran Turismo 7 gets Bärenstark Ki, which himself has professionals flat power

Sony and Polyphony Digital have presented a particularly powerful artificial intelligence that bears the name “Gran Turismo Sophy”. As it is called in the announcement, this system represents a “breakthrough” in the KI area and will be able to be tried in the future by Gran Turismo 7 players.

But in turn: Basically, Sophy is an autonomous, so comparatively independent learning Ki, which uses a special platform developed by Sony and Polyphony. The artificial intelligence was then trimmed to learn a series of properties within the GT games to drive as “homensah” as possible and to compete with the best GT professionals.

Sophy has learned mainly three criteria

  • Control of the vehicle: Flair for physics and dynamics of cars and learning of ideal lines, brake points etc.
  • Tactics: racing maneuvers like driving in the windshadow or the skilful blocking of other vehicles
  • Fairness: Note of rules and preventing unnecessary ramming maneuver

Test environment: Sophy was then released on Gran Turismo Sport and adhered to the above points by numerous analyzes, “so” actually learned the mechanics of the game.

Thereafter, various tests were made against a pair of the strongest “real” GT riders of Japan. While at a first test phase, the Ki still had a look, she did not have a chance in a second phase and won all the races.

Impressive demonstration: We have already convinced us in a live demonstration of the skills of the Sophy-Ki. During the race against human drivers, the four Ki-controlled vehicles showed numerous very human actions such as brake maneuvers, the skilful exploitation of windshadows or again and again tried overtaking in indoor sides. In the end one of the Ki cars won with a clear distance.

So Sophy is to be used in Gran Turismo 7

Sophy is currently being tested, however, how but chief developer Kazunori Yamuchi emphasized, the Ki should also be used in Gran Turismo 7. However, not directly to the launch in March, instead, Sophy should be submitted by Update at a later date.

Whether it will be possible to drive against the system is not quite clear, Yamauchi indicated that the KI first as a driving instructor, so a kind of assistance should act. For short or long, Sophy is likely to be based on the skill level of a driver or a driver – but fully integrated into the Gran Turismo series.

Gran Turismo 7 will be released on March 4, 2022 for PS5 and PS4. You can learn more about the game in our preview to GT7.
