FOX21 secured rights to developed VAMPYR TV series

FOX21, known for TV series such as Sons of Anarchy and Homeland, has acquired the rights to the RPG game VAMPYR although it was perceived as average by critics. The action-packed role-playing game developed by DONTNOD Entertainment, the studio behind critically acclaimed Life is Strange series, is an atmospheric ode to the myths of vampirism set in the era of the Spanish flu.

“We believe it is a fantastic premise for a television show. This is a new and exciting way for fans of the game, as well as the uninitiated, to enter and engage with VAMPYR’S rich, deep story. We cannot wait to see how the talented team at FOX21 will bring out the darkly atmospheric universe of our game into television.”, said the Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DONTNOD Entertainment.

Focus’ CEO Jurgen Goeldner agrees and adds, “we are delighted to partner with FOX21 for the adaptation of VAMPYR into a TV series. DONTNOD has created a uniquely dark, immersive world with deep narration, which has made VAMPYR already a modern video game classic. We cannot wait to see FOX21 bring all of their talent and experience in launching a TV show that will allow an even wider audience to discover the fantastic universe of VAMPYR.”

A third party, Dmitri Johnson, CEO of DJ2, joins in and mentions that “the DJ2 team loves the creative vision DONTNOD & Focus devote to all of their projects. The great relationship we’ve built with them since partnering on their incredible game, LIFE IS STRANGE, allowed us to get on board for VAMPYR well before its release.”

We cannot wait to see the outcome of this collaboration but if you don’t want to wait on the TV series, you can start by playing VAMPYR as it is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
