Gears of War arrives on Netflix, with a live-action film and an animated series

Gears of War is the next video game to land on Netflix , and moreover on a double occasion: film and animated series .

The Xbox-exclusively produced saga, which is also epic in its comic book version found on Amazon, will receive special treatment from the streaming giant.

In the hope that it will be very close to Cyberpunk Edgerunners , a product that has been able to capture the spirit of the original franchise.

And not like the Netflix series of Resident Evil , which fortunately will not have a second season after the debacle of the first.

The announcement comes as a surprise from Netflix’s Twitter account, which drops the bomb for all groundbreaking fans of the saga.

Gears of War was released 16 years ago , today, and to celebrate the occasion, Netflix has partnered with The Coalition to adapt the saga into two different products.

A live-action film arrives, followed by an animated series for adults, “with the potential for more stories to follow” , Netflix concludes.

An insight from the Hollywood Reporter reveals that the move comes after long months of negotiations in an apparently competitive environment. In which the streaming platform has been awarded the rights to Gears of War and consolidated the collaboration with The Coalition, developer currently at the helm of the franchise.

No director or producer is attached to these adaptations at the moment. While Hollywood has been trying to close such a deal for some time.

Gears of War has been in talks for the big or small screen since 2007 , when New Line briefly obtained the rights. Scott Stuber, in charge of the film, was commissioned to begin production way back in 2010, at the instigation of Universal.

The Xbox saga thus joins the many franchises that have come to Netflix . Like The Witcher , which recently lost its lead actor.

While other projects are arriving by the end of the year such as Sonic Prime , an animated series that is a candidate to be the Christmas product.

Netflix also expands into the world of video games , however, as the acquisition of the sixth development studio has arrived which will become internal and will make games exclusively.
