Greg Siegel, Senior Vice President of Development and Production for Legendary Digital Studios, announced that Legendary Digital Studios along with Square Enix will develop a digital series based on the hit and award-winning episodic teen drama game, Life Is Strange.

Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons of dj2 Entertainment – who recently produced the upcoming film Sonic the Hedgehog for Sony Pictures – will also be on board with the development.

“Life is Strange is one of those rare properties that combines incredibly developed characters and storylines with deeply engaging gameplay,” said Siegel. “It lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Square Enix, DONTNOD Entertainment and dj2 to bring the world of Arcadia Bay to life in an exciting new way.”

With that being said, Episode 1 of Life Is Strange was recently made available for free to download.

Legendary Digital Studios, Square Enix and dj2 are currently meeting
with potential writers for the series adaptation.
