This morning, Microsoft has unveiled their plans for the first slate of "Xbox Originals" programming and among that list is a live action adaptation of Chuck Dixon and Jorge Zaffino's classic series WinterWorld. Here's what they wrote in the press release:
"Xbox Entertainment Studios and IDW Entertainment are co-developing a limited event live-action series based on Chuck Dixon and artist Jorge Zaffino's seminal graphic novel series "Winterworld," in which our world has been encased in ice from pole-to-pole. The surviving humans have formed tribes that war, enslave and trade with one another in an effort to survive the infinite winter. Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, and Rick Jacobs and Dave Alpert from Circle of Confusion ("Walking Dead") will executive produce."
WinterWorld began as a limited series in 1988 and has recently been revived by IDW as a new ongoing with Dixon once again on board to write. Check back here for future announcements and reveals regarding WinterWorld and other Xbox Originals.
