"Final Fantasy XIV and Eorzea are the perfect gateway into Final Fantasy for longtime fans and newcomers alike.
"This show is about embracing and embodying all of the elements that have made the mythos such an endlessly captivating phenomenon, and it's an immense honour to be bringing all of Eorzea's iconic characters, settings, and concepts including fan-favourites like Cid and, of course, the chocobos to life for a television audience," Sony Pictures Television Co-President Chris Parnell said in a statement.
The makers are yet to announce the casting for the series.
