The Hollywood Reporter told a very interesting story. It looks like DICE and EA gave the rights to create a TV-show out of Battlefield series. Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta became the executive producers of the series.
This is the first time Paramount TV and Anonymous Content are building a project, based on a video game franchise. Battlefield is an incredibly project, which was super successful over the last years. The game’s total number of players is over 60 million (since 2002), so the views numbers should be pretty strong. Overall there were 11 games in the series, with the newest one debuting this October.
Paramount TV actively seeks smart content from all sectors that will resonate with audiences and translate to compelling programming. EA’s Battlefield has an incredibly dynamic narrative, coupled with a loyal fan base, which will allow us to bring this exciting and unique property to the small screen. We look forward to working with EA and Anonymous Content and thank Michael Sugar for his tenacity in bringing us this exciting project.

Battlefield has a tremendous built-in, engaged fan base, making it a highly coveted piece of IP primed for long-form adaptation. Together with EA and Paramount TV, we’ll develop the Battlefield TV series with the same commitment to robust storytelling that has made the game such a runaway success for nearly 15 years.
