Over the past few years, the PlayStation division has made a lot of efforts to adapt its franchises to films and series. At the same time, the success was different: for example, Uncharted became a commercial, but not critical success. But Gran Turismo seems to be showing good indicators in both directions. At the same time, The Last of US series has become a real hit with both a commercial and critical point of view and, most likely, will receive several major awards.
Among other projects in development, Ghost of Tsushima from the director "John Wick" Chada Stahelski. The director just finished the saga "John Wick" (at least at the moment) and is in search of the next project. So far, the director is busy in the project "Ghost Tsusima", but he also works on other films, including "Highlander" And "Rainbow-6". And no one knows what exactly his next film will be. But on the air of the podcast, Happy, Sad, Confusion Stahelski suggested that it was this project that could be the following.
Ghost of Tsushima is one of my largest projects. This is one of the most beautiful video games that have ever been created, so this is a challenge – to try to make no worse than guys from Sucker Punch, to collect Japanese and Asian actors in the role of Mongols and get the support of the rest of the world – that’s what is great. Everyone who is familiar with the game knows that this is a fantastic story, an incredible myth associated with very specific Japanese mythology, but at the same time going beyond any nationality. I think this is one of the best stories about video games [. ] I would like to make one of them [next time].
Currently, the terms of the release of the film adaptation Ghost of Tsushima are not said anything. Apparently, Stachali seeks to do everything right and wants to be sure that all the parties involved in the work are on the same wavelength. Maybe this is the only PlayStation Production project for which there is no hard time frame yet. However, apparently, he is firmly tuned to make a film, the only question is when this will happen.
So far, PlayStation has not announced the continuation of Ghost of Tsushima, which was released in 2020. However, given that the game received many awards, became a large commercial hit, and also received a film adaptation, it is logical to believe that the continuation will be. However, these are just guesses, since nothing is known about the plans of Sucker Punch, except for rumors. And given that 3 years have passed since the release of the game, we can assume that we can hear about the sequel next year, and then if we are lucky.
