Paramount Pictures files a trademark for World War Z game adaptation

Posted on July 18, 2012 - 6:00pm by Ryan Conway

The upcoming film adaptation of Max Brook’s insanely popular novel World War Z (a sequel of sorts to his ground breaking  Zombie Survival Guide), which tells individual accounts of a global conflict caused by a zombie outbreak, could be getting an adaptation of it’s own.

It appears that Paramount Pictures has filed a trademark for what could be a downloadable game based on the movie.

You might think it’s odd that Paramount is filing the trademark rather than an established video game publisher but the does have some experience in the gaming industry. For instance, it has backed its publishing muscle behind the downloadable War of the Worlds game and will be co-publishing next year’s Star Trek game alongside Namco Bandai.

If a World War Z game is in the works, we can likely expect to see it released sometime in June 2013, which would coincide with the film’s theatrical release.

What do you think g1s? Do you think World War Z would make a solid game? Or do you think it’s better left alone as a book/movie? Or are have you had your fill of zombies?
