'Narcos' Is Being Adapted Into A Video Game

Hit Netflix series Narcos is getting a video game adaption, so it's time to say 'see ya' to your social life.


According to IGN, the show is going to be made into a game for PC and consoles by Curve Digital, which has partnered with French studio Gaumont, which produces the show for Netflix.

Brynley Gibson who works at Kuju, Curve Digital's sister company which will be tasked with producing the game, told IGN: "We're looking forward to creating a game that matches the fantastic storyline and gritty action of the Netflix series.

"We're tremendously excited and have some amazing gameplay elements in the works that will please both fans of the show and gamers."

Curve Digital MD, Jason Perkins added: "Narcos is a fantastic license for us to work with.

"This critically acclaimed show from Gaumont lends itself perfectly to a video game execution and we're excited and proud to be bringing this to market."

An official release date hasn't been announced yet, but according to IGN it will be out in spring next year.

The massively popular show, which follows the life of infamous drug baron Pablo Escobar, has a fourth series on the way - despite threats from Escobar's brother towards Netflix.

In September last year Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, 71, told The Hollywood Reporter: "I don't want Netflix or any other film production company to film any movies in Medellin or Colombia that relates to me or my brother Pablo without authorisation from Escobar Inc.

"It is very dangerous. Especially without our blessing. This is my country."

He also warned the company it needed to 'hire hitmen' as security while filming on location.

His chilling threat came days after location scout Carlos Muñoz Portal, 37, was found dead in Mexico. His body was found in his car, 'riddled with bullets', on a dirt track in the town of Temascalapa.

At the time of his killing, Netflix said: We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected scout, and send our condolences to his family.

"The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."
