Ubisoft Plans Production For Watch Dogs Animated TV Series For Tweens
Developer and publisher Ubisoft isn’t known around the block for creating video games for G-rated audiences. With properties such as For Honor, the Tom Clancy series, Far Cry, and a multitude of other publications, their reputation errs on the side of mature. In spite of that, the French-based company plans on producing more family-friendly entertainment options and that includes Watch Dogs.
With four seasons of Rabbid Invasion on Netflix and France 3, Ubisoft plans on broaden their animated TV offerings for all ages. Picking up inspirations from their extensive library of properties, Ubisoft plans on taming them down. Take a look at the key art posters on a couple of their ideas:
Despite taking inspiration from IPs such as Watch Dogs, Far Cry 3, and Hungry Shark, gamers are warned not to take these shows too seriously. After all, they’re being created for kids. “To clarify, the animated television show involving hacking is inspired by the themes and ideas of the Watch Dogs brand but it is not set in the same universe or tied to it directly,” Ubisoft mentioned in response to concerns regarding the cybermystery show inspired by Watch Dogs (top left image).
Additionally, Ubisoft plan on creating a young-adult series called Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe based on the Far Cry 3 expansion Blood Dragon. They’ll be working alongside Castlevania producer Adi Shankar. Pretty neat, right?
