'Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect' Interactive Game Coming in Early 2015


Orpheus Interactive today confirmed a partnership with Fox Digital Entertainment on the development of an interactive game, Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect, the existence of which was previously teased by show creator and Executive Producer Kurt Sutter.

The first episode of Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect sets the stage for a brand new way to take in the Sons of Anarchy universe. Fans of the wildly popular TV series, which is currently wrapping up its seventh and final season on FX, will have a chance to explore an original story, location and previously unknown chapter of the motorcycle club. The interactive, episode-based game takes players on a new ride, with additional episodes becoming available on an ongoing basis. In keeping with the world Sutter has created, this extension of the mythology gives fans a chance to experience the treachery, graphic action, intrigue and life and death decision making they have come to anticipate from the show.

Orpheus, a freshly-formed Canadian game studio comprised of game development talent with multiple blockbusters under their belts, acquired the rights to make a game using the Sons of Anarchy license in 2013. They've enlisted the help of Silverback Games, another Canadian developer known for their story- driven games, and together have teamed up with Kurt Sutter and his creative team to make Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect an experience that is both compelling to players and faithful to the show.

Sutter Tweeted earlier this year that "I cannot give you any more details, but I will tell you that there will definitely be an SOA game...and it's pretty f**king awesome."

The first episode of Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect is coming in early 2015 to mobile phones and tablets worldwide.
