Sons of Anarchy game stalled
Creator Kurt Sutter says game based on biker drama getting "no traction," claims a major publisher "blew us off," has doubts game will ever exist.
The Sons of Anarchy game is struggling to get started. Franchise creator Kurt Sutter dispatched a series of tweets on the game this weekend, saying the project is getting "no traction" and is unlikely to ever see the light of day.
"Getting no traction on the [Sons of Anarchy] game," he wrote. "Looks like our big publisher blew us off. Not a priority at [television network] FX. I doubt it will happen."
This is a 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."
Expanding further, Sutter explained that developing a game is like shooting a movie and that he is not willing to sacrifice quality.
"[Games have a] huge upfront cost. Games are in decline," he added. "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/$$$."
[CORRECTION] An earlier version of this story said Telltale Games' The Waking Dead was the game Sutter was referring to in the last paragraph. GameSpot regrets the error.
