Asobo Studio’s narrative videogame A Plague Tale: Innocence is now getting made into a televised show, so prepare for a rat invasion inside your lounge room. Even though the series’s plot details are sketchy, we do know that the series would be taking place in Medieval France, the location of the videogame.
In order to maintain the drama’s realism, the production would additionally use French actors and actresses. Details of such information were first reported by Eurogamer. American development firms were swiftly disregarded as a possibility for modifying the videogame. To avoid straying too far from the videogame designer’s home base of Bordeaux, the event would rather stay put in its current location.
Who’s on Board
French filmmaker Mathieu Turi reportedly confirmed his participation in the project, although no development schedule or ensemble mates have been released. The filmmaker, who served as an associate filmmaker on Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, shared the wonderful tidings on social media.

Originally, A Plague Tale: Innocence was exclusively available as a digital download when it was released in early 2019. The videogame takes place in 14th-century Paris that follows the adventures of twins Amicia and Hugo. A plague-inducing army of rodents is stalking the pair’s path.
The videogame was a hit for the company even though it didn’t get a load of attention in regards to promotion and advertising. Playtesters as well as critics alike praised the videogame, describing it as a unique game that lives in its own league. Since the videogame was so successful, a tangible debut was made the year before, as well as a successor is expected to come out sometime in 2022.
This will be the next in a huge queue of shows inspired by computer games that will air on the network. Although HBO is presently producing a Last of Us series, Paramount+ is launching a Halo TV series that will grace our screens in April. It’s going to be intriguing to watch how such a series perform.
