Assassin’s Creed is coming to Netflix in multiple series, including live-action program
Netflix and Ubisoft are working together on multiple live-action, anime, and Assassin’s Creed animations.
Assassin’s Creed is coming to Netflix, and it’s doing it in style. Ubisoft and the streaming company have announced plans for several adaptations of the Assassin’s Creed series, including a live-action version that will be produced by Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik of Ubisoft. This series is still looking for a showrunner and it all sounds like the early days, but it looks like a great partnership.
The ad does not yet offer much detail, just saying it will explore the dynamic stories of the video game series for living, animated, and anime action series. Given the nature of Assassin’s Creed, they can all be set in different historical eras. Netflix also shared a teaser video featuring Netflix’s iconic bright red killer logo.
Assassin’s Creed had hit the screens in the past
This would not be the first time that the Assassin’s Creed series has been adapted by Hollywood. A 2016 film starring Michael Fassbender was set during the Spanish inquisition, but it was a critical failure. Ubisoft has been looking for adaptations for films and TV, including animation programs, for quite a while, however, even bursting its own division.
Netflix has already started adapting several Ubisoft series, including Skull & Bones and Beyond Good & Evil. Netflix was quick to get video game properties more widely as well, with recent series like Castlevania and Dragon’s Dogma and the upcoming Resident Evil.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft continues to develop its Assassin’s Creed fiction on the video game side, with the imminent launch of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This game, set during the Viking era, will be released on November 10, next to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 releases. It will also feature a free, next-generation update.
