The production company responsible for creating the upcoming ‘The Witcher’ Netflix adaptation, Hivemind, has teamed up with Sony Pictures Television to create a live-action Final Fantasy XIV TV series. Sony announced that the show will remain true to the lore, stories, characters, and setting of SQUARE ENIX’s famed franchise and that the games airship engineer, Cid Garlond, will play a key role.
Sony Pictures Television Co-President Chris Parnell says that Final Fantasy XIV will be a great “gateway” into the Final Fantasy universe for fans and newcomers. “This show is about embracing and embodying all of the elements that have made the mythos such an endlessly captivating phenomenon, and it’s an immense honor to be bringing all of Eorzea’s iconic characters, settings, and concepts – including fan-favorites like Cid and, of course, the chocobos – to life for a television audience.”
