Apparently too Sony is ready to launch on the TV series market, and is willing to do so with three of the most successful franchises on the scene PlayStation: God of War, Horizon And Gran Turismo. This is what emerged during the Sony Business Briefingan event that covered every activity of Sony Groupincluding the intention to bring the three aforementioned intellectual properties to transcend the gaming media to enter our streaming services.
The God of War, Horizon and Gran Turismo series are still blank sheets:
For the time being, the company has limited itself to obtaining the necessary transmission agreements, which were eventually signed with Netflix and with Prime Video, and at the moment the three projects are mostly blank sheets with no details. The intent of Sony is to distribute its franchises equally with the major players in the streaming industry. This means that how these series will land on Netflix And Prime Videofuture projects could affect any of the other companies active in the sector (Disney +, Paramount + etc…).
At the moment only two of the three franchises have found a home, namely Horizonentrusted to the care of NetflixAnd God of Waraffibbiata a Prime Video. Gran Turismo remains homeless, for now, as well as the formula of the series that will come out of it remains obscure. Being a car and racing game, without a story that can be defined as such, there are those who think that a show will come out in the style of Top Gear / Grand Tourbut obviously it’s too early to talk, they might as well come up with a style story Fast and Furious and turn it into a regular series with a strong focus on vehicles and engines.
These will probably not be the only ip that PlayStation it will accompany you in the transition from video games to TV series or cinema films. We know that at the moment SonyHe has ten projects in progress based on the company’s major franchises, and some are yet to be revealed to the public, according to reports.

The film for the cinema of Ghost of Tsushimaentrusted last year to the director of the acclaimed action John Wick.
