It has been confirmed that an “Assassin’s Creed” TV series is in the works. Despite the huge following of the franchise, its movie adaptation failed to be a box office hit or even break even in theaters last year. The upcoming show is rumored to be available on Netflix.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced last year that they have been in contact with Netflix for a possible series adaptation for one of their games. Screen Rant reports that the company’s Aymar Azaizia said in a forum that they are working on an “Assassin’s Creed” TV series.
Azaizia adds that they are taking their time with developing the “Assassin’s Creed” TV series similar to that of the movie. However, the Ubisoft employee did not specify if the rumored Netflix show will be in live-action or a CGI animation.
Netflix has been on a spree with releasing live-action comic book shows from Marvel and DC. The possibility of “Assassin’s Creed” TV show being streamed by them may be true. Furthermore, a series would do better for the franchise than a movie as it can accommodate a lot more content.
However, neither Ubisoft nor Netflix has released a formal announcement regarding the release of the “Assassin’s Creed” TV series. The show may take a while as either live-action or CGI animation will likely take some time.
On to what’s next for Ubisoft’s gaming franchise, there have been rumors of a new title called “Assassin’s Creed: Empire.” GameSpot reports that Azaizia was asked to confirm regarding a leaked image of the game to which he denied that it’s not from the franchise.
It has been speculated by fans that “Assassin’s Creed: Empire” will take place in Egypt and the game might be released soon. The outlet notes that Ubisoft has not released a new title for the franchise last year.
