Assassin’s Creed TV Series Is Coming, Ubisoft Confirms – Possibly To Netflix
Just like the modern film industry, the television industry is rampant now with adapting works from other artistic mediums and adapting them for television. Video games seem to be the new goldmine of film and tv show ideas that come with a built-in, pre-existing fanbase, thus making a safer bet for a high budget television production. We recently learned that the classic Castlevania video game series would be receiving a tv adaptation, and now it appears that an Assassin’s Creed tv series is also in the works.
A new Reddit Ask Me Anything session with Ubisoft’s Aymar Azaizia has confirmed this new venture. Azaizia, the head of content for Assassin’s Creed, answered many questions related to the game series to promote the Blu-ray release of the Assassin’s Creed film. Among the questions answered were ones pertaining to the lore of the film adaptation, as well as the narrative future of the games. One Redditor asked Azaizia about the previously hinted-at tv series. While no additional news was given about the series, Azaizia did acknowledge the project’s existence, saying:
It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wander if it’s on our plan… YES.”
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot mentioned last year that a Ubisoft game would be adapted for a series to likely air on Netflix, but it was not certain which franchise would be involved. Now, all fans have to do is wait and hope that Ubisoft finds a creative team capable of sticking the landing with this new leap of faith.
