A Plague Tale

Video Game ‘A Plague Tale’ Adaption Brings Tragic Story Of War And Disease To TV

A Plague Tale: Innocence, first released in 2019, is an action-adventure game that presents a tragic story of survival during the Hundred Years’ War and the black plague in 1348 France. The backdrop of war and disease makes the game devastating in its emotional tone.

Its stealth-based gameplay is thrilling and by placing the plight of a family front and centre, it’s a game that tugs at one’s heartstrings. As such, it is no surprise that a TV series based on the game is in the works. French director Mathieu Turi (Meander, Inglourious Basterds) has confirmed on Twitter that he is working on a TV series adaptation of A Plague Tale.


The French website, Allocine, states that the series will be sticking close to the game, and that the series will be kept “closer to its original setting and to the game’s original Bordeaux-based developer Asobo”.

For now, details surrounding the project remain scarce, but fans who want more of the survival story from the same despondent world can look forward to the game sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem, which is set to be released sometime in 2022 for the Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, and the Nintendo Switch.
