TV and film production house Gaumont has commissioned Curve Digital to create a video game based on its hit Emmy-nominated show Narcos.

The fourth season of the show is currently in production, chronicling the exploits of drug cartels, including the infamous Pablo Escobar.

“Narcos is a fantastic license for us to work with,” said Curve Digital MD Jason Perkins. “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.”

The game will be created by Curve Digital's sister company Kuju. Kuju's head of studio Brynley Gibson added: “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 is a world leading video game publisher and we trust them to develop and create our first Narcos console game title that will thrill our millions of Narcos fans, allowing them to engage with the storylines and characters they have come to know over the past three seasons,” concluded Tim Stephen, head of legal and business affairs at Gaumont.

The titles is planned for release on all major formats in Spring 2019, but little has been revealed as to the nature of the game as of yet.
