Barlog working on Mad Max game
Former God of War II director Cory Barlog is now working on a Mad Max game, according to this. Movie director George Miller confirmed the tie-in.
“Well, the first one will be a Mad Max game,” said Miller when asked the identity of the initial product of the pair’s partnership. “Because what happened was, we were all ready to go, within eleven weeks of shooting the next Mad Max movie, Fury Road. This was way back when the war in Iraq started, and that really threw this out for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which was that the American dollar crashed against the Australian dollar. And apart from that, just insurances, getting vehicles and stuff there on container ships – all that slowed down around the world. So we had to move on to Happy Feet, because that was going to take a long time.
“We were all ready to go on Fury Road, but instead of going off and shooting Fury Road straight away, I said ‘Okay, now that we’ve got that whole world prepared, let’s work together with somebody, if there’s someone out there.’ And that started off on the path of trying to get together with Corey. Not handing it off to some third party game developer as we did on Happy Feet, but to try to do it all as a piece, in the hope that we overcome that problem of making bad films from good games or vice versa.”
He added: “I’m delaying the movie in order to do a really good game. Normally what happens everyone’s scrambling to finish a game so it can coincide with the release of the movie. In this case, because I’ve got another couple of movies to make, we can wait and do it properly. That’s the theory.”
So now you know.
