There’s no word yet on a potential release date, but it seems Netflix is definitely throwing some serious cash at video game adaptations! The company already has both a CGI-animated and a live-action Resident Evil series. Though it’s technically based on the books, Netflix’s The Witcher series is still thriving, with an anime movie and a spin-off prequel confirmed for the future.
