Kurt Sutter wants Rockstar to make Sons of Anarchy game
Show creator acknowledges process would be expensive and complicated, but wants Grand Theft Auto studio to help bring stalled biker drama game to market.
Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter not only wants a console game based on his television show to be made, but he wants Rockstar Games to develop it. Writing on Twitter today, Sutter sought the help of the Grand Theft Auto publisher to bring a game based on the FX biker drama to market, but not without acknowledging the project would likely to face an uphill battle.
@rockstargames you should make the SOA game. i know it's an expensive/complicated process, but let's chat, see if we can make it happen.— kurt sutter (@sutterink) October 31, 2012
This is not the first time Sutter has lamented the difficulty of making a console game in today's market. In August, Sutter stated his ambition for the Sons of Anarchy game was to make an experience fans would appreciate, and noted this would not come easy.
"[Games have a] huge upfront cost. Games are in decline," he said at the time. "It's very risky. As a gamer, it's my responsibility to deliver a great game. Not some 1/2 promotional piece of sh*t like [Game of Thrones]. To do that means time/$$$."
In August, Sutter said the Sons of Anarchy game was stalled and may never get made. A major publisher reportedly dismissed the project, with Sutter claiming the game was not a priority for Sons of Anarchy television network FX.
This was in stark contrast from how Sutter felt in May. At the time, he said, "Had a great meeting with a big distributor yesterday. Myself and everyone at FX and Fox is committed to making this happen."
