Winterwold, an IDW comic from the team of Chuck Dixon and Jorge Zaffino, is set to be adapted into a live-action event programme.
Winterworld follows surviving humans who form tribes that war and enslave in an apocalyptic future where Earth has frozen over.
Original series writer Chuck Dixon said: "To see my stories and Jorge's powerful images brought to life will be a serious thrill. We have the right partners and the right format to really make this something special. It's an exciting time in comics and in entertainment overall, and I am very pleased that Winterworld will be a part of it."
IDW Entertainment president David Ozer said of the Xbox partnership: "Xbox is recognised globally for their groundbreaking creativity. IDW Entertainment could not ask for a better partner to bring Winterworld to life. "We are thrilled to be working with them during this exciting time in their growth."
The news follows Xbox recently revealing plans to adapt Fable and Gears of War video games into live-action.
