Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones Is Getting A TV Show
Information regarding Ubisoft’s upcoming pirate-based adventure Skull & Bones has been rather scarce as of late, but that hasn’t stopped the developer from working on things behind the scenes. You know, something like a TV adaptation of a video game that has yet to be released.
The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Ubisoft is teaming up with Atlas Entertainment to develop a TV series based on the upcoming video game. According to the report, it’s a “female-driven drama set in the lawless frontier of the Indian Ocean at the end of the golden age of piracy in the 1700s.”
The Mist’s Amanda Segel is set to write the pilot episode as well as executive produce. Joining her as executive producers Andy Horowitz and Richard Suckle. Director of development for television Danielle Kreinik said, “Ubisoft is known for creating innovative video games that combine immense worlds with rich narratives.” They will also executive produce alongside Jason Altman.
It is certainly interesting to see Ubisoft move forward with TV series based on Skull & Bones, especially when the game hasn’t been released yet. Their live-action adaptation of Assassin’s Creed was not met with unanimous praise, which also leads many to wonder why the studio would want to dive into the sea-based adventure that hasn’t cemented itself in the gaming world. Either way, it should be quite the ride.
As for the Skull & Bones video game, no release date is known at this time, but it is expected to arrive at some point in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
