Netflix and Ubisoft are teaming up to produce a live-action series of Assasin’s Creed.
The show will be the first of several new series on Netflix as the agreement with Ubisoft will “tap into the iconic video game’s trove of dynamic stories with global mass appeal for adaptations of live-action, animated, and anime series.”
The live-action show is still in its early stages. The production is in need of a showrunner. There is overall very little information on the series as it remains unclear when it will take place or what it will really be about. Assassin’s Creed is one of Ubisoft’s longest-running series and is known for combining historical settings with modern narratives, from the Crusades to Vikings and other historical moments
“From its breathtaking historical worlds and massive global appeal as one of the best selling video game franchises of all time, we are committed to carefully crafting epic and thrilling entertainment based on this distinct IP and provide a deeper dive for fans and our members around the world to enjoy,” said Netflix original series vice president Peter Friedlander in a prepared statement.
