In an interesting new announcement, Amazon Game Studios revealed plans to release a video game adaptation of the Amazon Prime Original, The Grand Tour. For those unfamiliar with the show, The Grand Tour launched after the conclusion of the British hit TV series, Top Gear, which ran from 2002 until 2015.
Debuting in November of 2016, The Grand Tour stars the same hosts as Top Gear including Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.
