ZA / UM and dj2 Entertainment sign a collaboration agreement to transfer Disco Elysium to a television series. More data is unknown.
Disco Elysium will make the leap to television. ZA / UM will collaborate with dj2 Entertainment to develop a series based on the game. The best independent game of 2019 by The Game Awards will be released in another medium by Dmitri M. Johnson, CEO and founder of the animation studio, who among his works highlights the co-production of Sonic the Hedgehog.
“We are very pleased with the response Disco Elysium has received, and very pleased to collaborate with DJ2 in expanding the brand to other new media and audiences,” commented ZA / UM lead writer Helen Hindpere.
At the moment it is unknown who will write it and in what media it will see the light. As Dmitri says, he praises a brand that, in his words, claims to have “unlimited potential.” “The team is excited about the extraordinary opportunity to be a part of it all,” he describes.
The game came last year as one of the RPG’s biggest names in recent years. In it we play a detective with a stormy past, who must shed light on a crime that threatens to lead political factions into civil war.
Only available on PC, a few weeks later it confirmed its future launch on PS4 and Xbox One. A port that was born from the bowels of the same studio in order to reach “the widest possible audience”, according to Robert Kurwitz, chief designer of the title. Also coming to Nintendo Switch.
In the Reviews of this house, our editorial coordinator, Francisco Alberto Serrano, scored a 9.4 out of 10, which emerged as “a necessary RPG revolution”. “Disco Elysium is a new lighthouse that marks a valid and necessary direction for the computerized role and that we hope will become a mirror in which other productions want to look at themselves in the future”. English is the only barrier that some of our readers will encounter, although it will have an official Spanish translation by Clan Dlan.
