Mad Max Game Coming from Creator George Miller, God of War 2 Director Cory Barlog

Writer and director George Miller, creator of the Mad Max series of films, has teamed up with God of War II lead Cory Barlog to create a video game adaptation of an upcoming Mad Max sequel.

According to Newsweek's N'Gai Croal, the game will be based on Mad Max: Fury Road, a fourth film in the series that Miller was forced to put on hold following the start of the war in Iraq. Miller now plans to release both the game and movie simultaneously.

Due to his age, Mad Max star Mel Gibson will not be featured in either the movie or video game, according to Miller. The game will of course include melee, projectile, and vehicular combat.

"Cory's working on [the script]. Then we'll be getting together and reviewing it, and we'll slowly get our team together," said Miller on the status of production.

Barlog left his post at SCEA Santa Monica last November during the development of God of War III, and was briefly rumored to be joining God of War creator David Jaffe's new studio Eat, Sleep, Play.
