According to Variety, the Disco Elysium show will be made by the same people who made the Disco Elysium game - developer ZA/UM, which has partnered with production company dj2 Entertainment to develop the series.

The hit video game "Disco Elysium" is getting the TV series treatment.

"'Disco Elysium' is a phenomenal property with an expansive world and unlimited potential", dj2 CEO Dmitri M. Johnson said.

Johnson is the main name attached to the project so far, having worked as a co-producer on the recent Sonic the Hedgehog movie. That's not where the videogame partnerships end, however, as the company is also working on a live-action version of Sleeping Dogs. Rich declared the game represented a "new standard of RPG writing" in our Disco Elysium review and awarded it a 9/10. In the game, you play as a police detective struggling to remember his own past and plot his way forward as he works on solving a murder in a town on the precipice of revolution. It also won three BAFTA awards and was named one of the best games of the decade by Time Magazine. Most RPGs are very combat-centric, but as Andy noted in his review, Disco Elysium "has a lot in common with visual novels and point-and-click adventures, with dense, branching dialogue and the ability to intimidate, charm, or bullshit your way out of tricky situations via several novels' worth of brilliantly odd, vibrant dialogue".

We'll keep you updated with any Disco Elysium TV series news as it breaks, so stay tuned.
