Dragon Age TV Show Reportedly In "Active Development" At Netflix


Dragon Age TV Show Reportedly In "Active Development" At Netflix

This is a turn up for the books. According to a recent report, Netflix is in "active development" for a Dragon Age adaptation for the streaming service, and it might be a live-action affair.


Giant Freakin' Robot has learned from one of its "trusted and proven" sources that the series of RPGs is being transformed to attract new audiences, which plonks it on the considerable pile of video game TV shows produced by Netflix. Resident Evil Infinite Darkness released earlier this month and that was certainly an experience. I'm not sure why it was titled "Infinite Darkness," nor was I so sure that Claire Redfield needed to be there when the story gave her nothing to do. Well, the live-action show that follows the Wesker daughters has piqued my interest, plus, we couldn't have casted a better Albert Wesker for it.

There's an Assassin's Creed show in the works, as well as a Sonic show and a Tomb Raider show that celebrates the golden anniversary of the game. This isn't even mentioning the top dog here, which is of course the live-action The Witcher show with Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan. So, while it is surprising to see a Dragon Age TV show on the cards, it's only one more step in Netflix's ambition to offer an enormous range of entertainment to its members.

Nab a behind-the-scenes look at the next Dragon Age game that has been in development for almost six years now.



In its scoop, Giant Freakin' Robot pointed out that Dragon Age offers an enviable level of freedom to a writer wanting to adapt it for the small screen. There are a number of established characters yet the games allow the player to carve their own path from a rich world filled with beauty, conflict, betrayal, magic, mystery, espionage, myth...

I could go on, but I'm aware that you've got things to do today. I'm also aware that the report misspells "Thedas" twice, so I would hold our horses for now. Netflix is a large company, and to rebuke that iconic line from Mean Girls, the limit does exist. The Witcher is apparently continuing for another five seasons and in order to satisfy fans of the genre and the game, the Dragon Age TV show would need to match the scale of this one. Unless, it's an animated show like Castlevania. One of the writers on the anticipated Nightmare of the Wolf praised the possibilities of animation over live-action adaptations, so this is a possible avenue for the production team. We'll keep you updated when we learn more.
