HBO Max is adapting a well-known game property that is sure to appeal to many fans, unlike its streaming rival Netflix, which recently announced the opening of an internal games studio in Finland.
Additionally, given the success of streaming shows like “Halo,” “Arcane,” “Witcher,” and others, it’s logical to assume that video-game adaptations will be crucial for increasing subscriber growth.
