With a brand new expansion releasing next week and an exciting future ahead of it, Sony Pictures Television has announced that they are partnering with Square-Enix to develop a TV show based on the popular MMO Final Fantasy XIV. Heading up the production work will be Hivemind Productions, whose work you may have seen in Amazon’s The Expanse and the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher.
While no specific plot for the TV show has been announced, the show will be set in the world of Eorzea, which blends traditional fantasy and magic, with an undercurrent of technology, and its characters will need to find a way to bring peace to a land of conflict. The only real confirmation as to what will actually be in the show is the first live-action adaptation of long time Final Fantasy favourite Cid, or Cid nan Garland in XIV’s version.
No release date for the show has been announced, but it will be interesting to see if this goes ahead and where it goes from there. Would you watch a Final Fantasy XIV TV show?
