Assassin’s Creed is getting the live-action treatment in a new Netflix series, Ubisoft announced, but that’s just the start of a larger move onto the small screen. The Assassin’s Creed Netflix collaboration includes animated and anime Assassin’s Creed shows as well.
The first project in the deal is a “genre-bending” live-action Assassin’s Creed series based on the classic games. Netflix’s Vice President of Orignal Series, Peter Friedlander, said:
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.
How Assassin’s Creed on Netflix might expand the game universe remains to be seen. Netflix and Ubisoft are still searching for a showrunner to serve as the project’s creative manager.
If the wait for Assassin’s Creed on Netflix seems unbearable, at least there’s still Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to look forward to on launch day for both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
