A live-action Final Fantasy XIV TV series is in the work from the production company developing Netflix‘s upcoming adaptation of The Witcher. Sony Pictures Television announced that the show will remain faithful to the overall lore of SQUARE ENIX‘s online MMORPG, including its stories, characters, and setting. The game’s staple airship engineer Cid Garlond will also play a pivotal role in the series.

“FINAL FANTASY XIV and Eorzea are the perfect gateways into FINAL FANTASY for longtime fans and newcomers alike,” said Sony Pictures Television Co-President Chris Parnell. “This show is about embracing and embodying all of the elements that have made the mythos such an endlessly captivating phenomenon, and it’s an immense honor to be bringing all of Eorzea’s iconic characters, settings, and concepts – including fan-favorites like Cid and, of course, the chocobos – to life for a television audience.”

According to the press release, “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.”

The details are scarce and there’s currently no launch date, but until we get another announcement, you can currently stream Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on Netflix.
