Sons of Anarchy browser game possible

Show creator Kurt Sutter says meetings happening soon with "major gaming company" to bring biker drama to the Web.

Fans of FX's Sons of Anarchy have news to be either fairly excited or measurably nonplussed about. Over the weekend, show creator Kurt Sutter tweeted that plans are being made to create a game based on the violent gang drama but that its destined platform will likely be Web browsers.

Sons of Anarchy could offer the likes of FarmVille…protection.

"[S]oon to be taking meetings about an [Sons of Anarchy] game," Sutter's message read. "[H]ave a major gaming company interested. [T]rying to figure out costs, platform and timing." In a subsequent tweet, Sutter said, "[T]o do a quality platform-based game costs tens of millions and takes years. [W]e're toying with the idea of a high-end browser-based game."

Sons of Anarchy wouldn't be the first show Fox has turned into a Web browser game. Last year, the media company announced Family Guy Online. In development at Roadhouse Interactive, the 3D game is set to be free-to-play with role-playing elements. It is expected to launch this fall.

Premiering in 2008, Sons of Anarchy tells the story of an outlaw biker gang operating in Southern California. The show has picked up a handful of awards in its four seasons, including a Golden Globe in 2010. Season five is expected to premiere this fall.

We already have Sons of Anarchy the game, it's called GTA IV: The Lost and Damned.

I don't see this being a good move nor a bad move. I love the TV show, it's probably one of my favorites, if not my favorite. A game version wouldn't tarnish the show I don't think, even if it sucked. I don't really see how a game could work for it though, so I have no intentions of playing it. One of the reasons I love the show so much is the story and plot development. That can't happen in a little web-browser based game.

Tell tale games! I loved how they made a spin off of Back to the Future.

Sons is one of my favorite shows and it deserves a REAL game if they have to do it. If they designed the game like a AAA title is done, then they would sell millions of copies. If they do it on the cheap, which is more likely, then they'll severely damage a great franchise and piss off alot of fans. Why don't these suits understand this kind of thing?

Make a proper PC game instead, and if it looks good, I'll buy it.
