Directed by Walter Bill, The Warriors is a cult-classic movie from 1979 based on a Sol Yurick novel of the same name and fans want its video game adaptation to receive a modern remake.
It’s not often that video games based upon TV and movies knock it out of the park, but when The Warriors video game adaptation was released in 2005 for PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox, it joined an elite group alongside the likes of Spider-Man 2, GoldenEye 007, The Thing, and more. However, The Warriors game is not to be confused with the woeful Street Brawl of 2009 released on Xbox Live Arcade. Avoid that game, at all costs.

Developed by Rockstar Toronto, from what I remember, The Warriors video game was more fun than many had expected at the time, even for a title published by Rockstar Games. Following its release nearly 20 years ago, The Warriors received rave reviews and garnered scores as high as 85 on the aggregate website, Metacritic. Now, fans of the adaptation are desperate for The Warriors to receive a remake on modern consoles.
A petition that was created on Change.Org and has so far generated over 5,000 signatures and it needs your help to give it a much-needed boost. At the time of writing, the petition to bring The Warriors to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S has received over 400 signatures so far this week as it sets to achieve its next milestone goal of 7,500. “I’m creating this petition because I believe that The Warriors deserves a complete remake and graphic overhaul,” pleads the petition organiser Jaiden Thornton.
It’s unlikely that this petition will result in Rockstar Games commissioning a remake for The Warriors, but we can at least try to give them a nudge if you’re a fan of its movie inspiration.
If all else fails, the original The Warriors game is available to purchase as a PS2 classic title on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It has an RRP of £11.99, but it’s often discounted to around £7.50 every other month.
