Upcoming Game-Based Movies and Series: What to Expect image

Hollywood's got their hands on your favorite games, and they're determined to make you wait years before you see your pixelated heroes come to life. Expect lots of hype, delays, and a mixed bag of adaptations coming your way.

Grab your popcorn and mark your calendars, because a host of movies and TV shows based on video games are set to hit screens soon. Some are almost ready to go, while others still have a long road ahead.

Nearing Completion

One of the most anticipated releases is the second season of Arcane, which will premiere in November 2024. Following on its heels will be the Minecraft movie set to debut on April 4, 2025. Notably, fans of Mortal Kombat can look forward to the franchise’s next installment, with the sequel slated for release on October 24, 2025.

Another series eagerly awaited by fans is the second season of The Last of Us, expected to launch sometime in 2025. Meanwhile, the writers behind a Bioshock adaptation assure us that production is ongoing, though progress has been hindered by the Hollywood writers' strike.

In the Pipeline

In the realm of samurai epics, Ghost of Tsushima is making strides with a completed script ready for filming to commence soon. Similarly, Horizon 2074 and Death Stranding are on the horizon, although their premiere dates remain shrouded in mystery. For Gears of War fans, there's an upcoming series in development, yet its release date also remains undetermined.

Meanwhile, the gods will have to wait a bit longer to grace the silver screen, as the God of War film isn't expected for at least three more years.

Future Plans

Additionally, sequels and new adaptations are in the works, including a follow-up to the blockbuster Super Mario Bros. Movie, with projects like Zelda and Sonic 3, which is scheduled for release on December 20 this year. Even Until Dawn is slated to get the cinematic treatment.

So, while the wait may be long, the blend of action, fantasy, and adventure these projects promise might just be worth it. Keep an eye out for further announcements and updates as these beloved game worlds transition from your consoles to your streaming services and cinemas.
