The actual adaptation will be handled by DJ2 Entertainment, who is already working with Dontnod on a TV adaptation of Life is unusual.

Fox 21 have secured the rights for a series produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision, the company owned by music video and movie director McG.

Released this past June on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Vampyr follows Doctor Jonathan Reid who rises from a mass grave near London in 1918 as a vampire. With that hurdle now passed, Fox 21 is moving forward with its television project, and has attached none other than McG to develop the series, serving as director and executive producer via his Wonderland Sound & Vision shingle, which will also be represented by Mary Viola and Corey Marsh.

The popular video game Vampyr is being adapted for television with prolific producer/director McG at the helm. McG has worked as an executive producer on myriad high-profile genre television shows such as Supernatural, Lethal Weapon, Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, Nikita, Chuck and Human Target, just to name a scant few. Published by Focus Home Interactive, Vampyr has managed to sell roughly 450,000 copies within its first month, becoming the top game for June 2018 in the USA, along with various European countries.

DONTNOD has been getting all sorts of acclaim from critics and fans alike for the dramatic adventure Vampyr, which has been making waves since its release earlier this year. Guess we'll find out in the months ahead as Vampyr moves onward in development.
