A game based on the Narcos TV series is in the works and tentatively set for release in Spring of 2019.
The Netflix-exclusive series takes a hard look at the lives of infamous drug and crime kingpins, including Pablo Escobar and DEA run-ins with the Cali Cartel, and chronicles the rise and fall of several infamous figures throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The critically acclaimed show is currently in production for its fourth season.
With three seasons of content and a solid writing crew, the Narcos-inspired game certainly had plenty of material to explore. The game is being developed by a sister company of Curve Digital, Kuju. Kuju is known for games like Pokemon Art Academy, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, whereas Curve Digital is known for publishing several popular games, including Human Fall Flat and Lone Survivor.
As of right now, we can only speculate as to what kind of game we will see from Kuju with such a wide collection of source material from which to draw. The Narcos title is expected to release in Spring 2019 for all major consoles, and we’ll keep you updated on any news about the game.
