surprise, they're making a movie based on the game.  no cast or director yet, but I imagine we'll see it around the same time Watch Dogs 2 hits.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.

It's a good premise for a movie, with some AAA games getting more and more cinematic, it's easy to see why.

In this case, the major game mechanic also works well for film since you just get a lot of shots the main character tapping his phone, and draw those little connection lines around the place.

Some cinematic games have mechanics that don't translate well to film or other media, so it can be more difficult to write around that and make it feel natural. But this works well.

Then you have an underdog vigilante with a shady past looking for equal parts revenge and justice, along with another group of Anonymous style hackers called DeadSec that want him taken out just as much as the police and criminals do. All in the background of a city-wide tech utopia that's just masking a dystopia. Makes for an interesting plot.
