The Always Sunny in Philadelphia cast and crew has partnered with Ubisoft on a TV show about a fictional fantasy MMO called Mythic Quest. Rob McElhenney appeared on-stage at the publisher’s E3 conference to reveal more information about the upcoming Apple TV show.
“Our show takes place in the fictional studio that created the biggest MMORPG in the world: Mythic Quest,” McElhenney says. “We meet them on the cusp of releasing their biggest expansion yet, Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet. The show follows the team of devs as they navigate the challenges of running their game while dealing with the difficulties of modern office life.”
McElhenney is creating Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet with several of the Always Sunny writers and producers, including Megan Ganz, David Hornsby, and Charlie Day, who co-stars as Charlie Kelly. They will be joined by veteran actor F. Murray Abraham (Scarface, Last Action Hero, Homeland). The trailer for the comedy series is an advertisement for the expansion, explaining what it will be about and bragging about Mythic Quest’s popularity. It finishes with McElhenney’s character, a narcissistic creative director with “an ego the size of a city bus,” shirtless and gazing into the sunset.
Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is set to debut as part of Apple’s new streaming service, Apple TV Plus. McElhenney and Ubisoft have not announced an air date yet. You can watch the full trailer below at 1:38:13.
Ubisoft, having already brought Assassin’s Creed to the silver screen, has also announced that its Tom Clancy’s The Division movie will stream on Netflix. The adaptation was originally announced back in 2016, with Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain in its leading roles and David Leitch directing.
Ubisoft’s other big announcements at E3 included the launch date of Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s beta, the next Rainbow Six title that’s a co-op game called Quarantine, and an abundance of information about Watch Dogs Legion and how you can recruit and play as literally anyone in its futuristic London setting.
