Final Fantasy XIV is Being Developed into a Live-Action Series

Final Fantasy XIV

Sony Pictures Television and Hivemind announced a new partnership with global video game powerhouse Square Enix to develop a first-of-its-kind, live-action adaptation of a beloved chapter from the blockbuster Final Fantasy series, which has sold more than 144 million units worldwide across three decades.

The live-action television series will tell an original story set in the fantastic world of Eorzea, based on Final Fantasy XIV, the franchise’s blockbuster online role-playing game. Since it first debuted in 2013, the online title has continued to delight and amass millions of players around the world year over year and only further cemented Final Fantasy as one of the most storied and influential franchises in gaming history.

Inspired directly by the world and characters of the title’s fourteenth installment, the project will embrace the bold and genre-bending sensibilities of the revered and long-running Final Fantasy series as it explores the struggle between magic and technology in a quest to bring peace to a land in conflict. Filled with iconic hallmarks of the title’s revered mythology – magitek and beastmen, airships and chocobos – the forthcoming series will feature a mixture of new and familiar faces. Those will, notably, include the live-action debut of Cid – one of the games’ central and most beloved characters who has appeared in almost every installment of the franchise to date.

Final Fantasy’s multibillion-dollar legacy is one of the most influential pieces of global pop culture of the past 30 years with a footprint that now encompasses all major home and handheld consoles, as well as toys, card games, manga, soundtracks, concerts and live events on three continents. The upcoming television adaptation represents a momentous new milestone for the franchise and will mark the first time a Final Fantasy world – and its many beloved inhabitants – will be realized in live action.

Jason F. BrownSean Daniel, and Dinesh Shamdasani of Hivemind will serve as Executive Producers on the series. Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton have been commissioned to write for the series and will also serve as Executive Producers.
