Big news for those of you who are waiting and waiting to see Mad Max: Fury Road. For those who don’t know, a few years ago the fourth Mad Max installment was literally weeks away from shooting when everything fell apart. There were issues of security due to it shooting in Africa, and the start of the Iraq war and failing of the American dollar didn’t help things either. But director George Miller wants to do it with or without Mel Gibson… and perhaps without film.
Yes, George Miller may have found his way to finally get his story out through a video game. He’s created a partnership with God of War II director Cory Barlog, fresh from his departure from Sony. Newsweek’s N’Gai Croal (you really gotta get a better name in front of yours, man, you’re better than them) broke the story yesterday through phone interviews with both parties.
It’s very early for this as the game’s still early in planning. There’s no details on what consoles this will hit, or even any kind of gameplay specifics (besides that you can expect some car battles, duh), but you can see that the potential here is staggering. A guy who’s done incredible games in the past with a bad-ass franchise like Mad Max? Let’s hope for the best with this one.
