As many of you know, XBox Entertainment Studios licensed the rights for a Deadlands live action series. Unfortunately, Microsoft soon after decided to refocus on their core business and shut the studio down. A group of the development team remained to continue on with some of what they considered their top prospects, including Deadlands, but given the delays and other difficulties we eventually agreed to part ways. We thank the XBox team for their fantastic support and dedication to the project, and we can’t wait to see the work we all put into it land somewhere else.
As of November 1st, the Deadlands rights have reverted back to Pinnacle. Our AAA writer / director is still attached (we haven’t revealed who he is just yet) and his script and personal involvement is still getting lots of attention, so we’re hopeful we’ll land at another venue soon.
In the meantime, check out a preview of the stunning cover art for the Deadlands: Stone and a Hard Place Plot Point, set to release in December 2014. With your unflagging loyalty and support, Deadlands keeps on a-rollin’, amigos!
