The TRON Video Game Timeline


This is partially for fun because I’m excited about the upcoming TRON movie, and partially because this is something you would expect a fan to create and publish.  Instead, Disney created this simple TRON: Evolution timeline that explains where most of the TRON video games fit in history (TRON 2.0 is noticeably absent).  This is part of the product description page on Amazon.com.

It didn’t have to be complicated, but this timeline quickly and clearly communicates when each of the games takes place in reference to the movies.  It also nicely incorporates the design style of the new movie and uses the light cycle trail.

TRON Story Timeline

  • The TRON: Evolution video games are the key to unlocking the TRON mythology in between the original 1982 film and the 2010 blockbuster film TRON: Legacy.
  • Every game tells a different story of the digital grid and offers a completely unique gameplay experience designed specifically for each platform.

Nicely done Disney.  See you on the Grid!

Yeah, and I wish a fan would have made it, because than there would be all TRON games and not just the one Disney is trying to make money with right now! -.-

I thought the light cycle trail was actually a builder's retractable tape measure at first - at least it does to me as someone used to metric tape measures showing centimetres.
Looking forward to the movie! Based on the timeline I must have only been 10 when the first one came out and I barely understood it, but still remember the light cycles and their trails.

Tron for Wii in 1988...I don' tthink so.

The timeline shows the dates when each game “takes place” during the history of the TRON universe.. Those aren’t release dates.
