The lights are on
Paramount Pictures filed a trademark recently for a World War Z video game. A movie based on the novel is due out sometime next year.
The filing doesn't confirm a game is in development, but now Paramount has the option if they so choose. As noted by Siliconera, Paramount has been dabbling a bit in the games space with the release of The War of the Worlds, a download title, and Star Trek, due out early next year.
Oh I am so buying this
They only JUST trademarked this, and people are already saying they would buy it.
Universal if you have any brains at all hire some well known studio to make something.
This book was a great snapshot of alternative history. Super cool if it's even a movie. I don't really care for the idea of a game, though.
Resident Evil 6, The Last of Us, those will most likely be conspiracy oriented zombie games, with outbreaks and such. World War Z I haven't heard much about it, but, it may be a stand alone zombie title like the rest that have come before it.
Great book! Really excited to see how the movie and game turn out...
*achem* nerdgasm aside, I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. Episodic content and the level-based format of games is something I'd love to see adapted into the different chapters of this book.
