Disco Elysium TV Series in Works

TV series adaptation of Disco Elysium is in works from Sonic the Hedgehog movie production company.

Bagging multiple accolades at The Game Awards 2019 including Best Independent Game, unique role-playing title Disco Elysium from developer/publisher ZA/UM is awaiting release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to latest reports, Disco Elysium is currently in talks to receive a TV series treatment soon. Indie studio and series creator ZA/UM will be teaming up with dj2 Entertainment, producers who worked on Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Aside from upcoming TV show, dj2 Entertainment has license to well-known video game series like Life is Strange, Sleeping Dogs, Vampyr and We Happy Few with further plans to work on feature film projects or making TV series adaptations.

Their only project that got greenlit so far is recent live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which became a blockbuster. No writer is currently attached to the project just yet as dj2 is actively looking for one to make a pitch for later in 2020.

It will be very interesting to see how an amnesiac detective, Harrier "Harry" DuBois will be discovering his own identity as well as whatever character traits of lead protagonist from his "Thought Cabinet" would make it to the show.

Detective RPG experience of BAFTA award winner Disco Elysium heading over to small screens will be pretty exciting for fans. ZA/UM and dj2 Entertainment has yet to assign a TV network or streaming platform for broadcasting partnership.

Disco Elysium Coming to Nintendo Switch

BAFTA award-winning RPG masterpiece Disco Elysium is coming to Nintendo Switch handheld very soon.

A sleeper indie-hit of last year, role-playing game Disco Elysium from developer/publisher ZA/UM has been out on all major platforms including PC, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version on their way, except Nintendo Switch.

However, a Switch port is now confirmed to be in development according to a statement by the game's art director Aleksander Rostov, who unintentionally ended up slipping this information during an exclusive podcast session with BBC.

Right after winning over three accolades at BAFTA Games Awards this year for Best Debut Game, Best Music and Best Narrative, Rostov and narrative lead Helen Hindpere recently attended BBC "Game On" podcast for an interview.

At one point, he jokingly tells host Adam Rosser that he is being kept away from doing work on a Switch port. His statement was backed up by Helen Hindpere as well saying, "It's going to happen soon", hinting at an announcement as well.

Aleksander Rostov tells how he was busy with development of a Nintendo Switch version of Disco Elysium lately.

This interview is, at this very moment, interrupting me from writing up design documentation for the user interface and input systems for the Switch port.

You play as a detective, who is working on a murder case while suffering from amnesia due to drug abuse. There are no scopes for direct combat for most part and your dialogue choices will often become a key in overcoming situations.

Disco Elysium was awarded "Best Independent Game" at The Game Awards 2019 and won in three other categories as well. Hopefully a launch date for its Nintendo Switch version will align with PS4 and Xbox releases later in 2020.
