While news about Beyond Good & Evil 2 remains thin on the ground, Netflix has confirmed a Hollywood Reporter story about a movie based on the "epic space pirate adventure" being in the works.

Rob Letterman, previously responsible for the actually-quite-decent Detective Pikachu movie, will be directing, with Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin producing.

After the success of The Witcher and Castlevania, Netflix seem intent on continuing their adaptations of videogame properties, with even Cuphead about to get its own TV show, as well as Splinter Cell and Dragon's Dogma

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
