Curve and Gaumont team up for game based on Narcos TV show

15.03.2018

Curve Digital has announced a deal with film company Gaumont to produce a video game based on the TV show Narcos.

Gaumont are the producers of the Golden Globe and Emmy award-nominated Narcos. The show chronicles the real life rise of cocaine trafficking and the drug lords enabling it. The fourth season is currently in production.

“Narcos is a fantastic license for us to work with,” said Curve Digital MD Jason Perkins. “This critically acclaimed show from Gaumont lends itself perfectly to a video game execution and we’re excited and proud to be bringing this to market.”

The game will be created by Curve Digital's sister company Kuju. Kuju's head of studio Brynley Gibson added: “We’re looking forward to creating a game that matches the fantastic storyline and gritty action of the Netflix series. We’re tremendously excited and have some amazing gameplay elements in the works that will please both fans of the show and gamers.”

“Curve Digital is a world leading video game publisher and we trust them to develop and create our first Narcos console game title that will thrill our millions of Narcos fans, allowing them to engage with the storylines and characters they have come to know over the past three seasons,” added Tim Stephen, Head of Legal and Business Affairs at Gaumont.

The game is planned to release on "all major formats" in Spring 2019. Nothing yet has been revealed with regards to storyline, content or even the genre of the game, but it's fair to expect a fair bit of white powder.
