Dragon Age: Absolution is one of many new video game TV shows and movies in the works. In an ever-growing pipeline of video-game adaptations, TV series based on Sony PlayStation properties God of War and Horizon were announced as ramping up production most recently in late May. Sony said in May 2021 that it had 10 TV shows/movies based on its games in the works, including the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie from John Wick's Chad Stahelski, HBO's The Last of Us series, and the Twisted Metal show from the writers of the Deadpool movies.
