While we knew that Firewatch had sold very well for an indie game when it launched earlier this year with sales of 500,000 in its first month, we’re now finally getting more information on how the IP is doing. The developer has now reported that the game has sold close to 1,000,000 copies since it launched in February, though there’s also some other very big news to share.
Developer Campo Santo has apparently teamed up with Good Universe to make a film adaptation of Firewatch, though it won’t be the only project that they work on together. Campo Santo’s Sean Vanaman said the following:
“When we met Good Universe we were floored by how they recognize, cultivate and produce incredible stories. It’s rare you meet another group that shares so many of your values and makes the process of creating things even more exciting. We can’t wait to see what we make together.”
Despite the announcement of the movie, there were no actual details given regarding whether it would follow the same story or do something different.
Firewatch is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
