A Ubisoft employee confirmed yesterday that the company is developing an Assassin’s Creed television series.
During a Reddit AMA, head of content for Assassin’s Creed Aymar Azaizia answered a fan’s question regarding the previously rumored show. He said, “It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wander [sic] if it’s on our plan … YES.” He shared no other specifics about the show, and the game was still not formally announced.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in November that the game company was in talks with Netflix for a series, though no indication was given regarding with which property that would be. Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the company’s film and TV division, previously produced Rabbids Invasion for Nickelodeon and December’s Michael Fassbender-starring theatrical adaptation of Assassin’s Creed.
This show wouldn’t be Netflix’s first videogame property, as just last month a Castlevania series was announced to be coming to the platform. For a look at the closest approximation we’ve got to a show so far, check out this December trailer for the Assassin’s Creed movie.
