Ubisoft and Netflix Partner Up for Assassin’s Creed Live Action Series Adaptation(s)

For not the first time in the franchise’s long history in the video game market, Assassin’s Creed is going to receive a live-action adaptation. Ubisoft and Netflix this morning confirmed that they have entered into an agreement which will see content developed based on the franchise. This follow’s the 2016 theatrical release of Assassin’s Creed in cinemas, which unfortunately received a less-than great reception and never received a sequel. Here’s hoping that this partnership will see the diverse lore featured in the series explored in a more in-depth and enjoyable fashion.

It has been confirmed that Ubisoft Film & Television’s Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik will serve as Executive Producers on the project(s), while the hunt for a showrunner is currently underway. According to Ubisoft, “The first series in development is slated to be an epic, genre-bending live action adaptation”.

It is clear that things are still in the early stages at the moment, but I would expect to hear more on these projects in 2021.

For more than 10 years, millions of fans around the world have helped shape the Assassin’s Creed  brand into an iconic franchise.

We’re thrilled to create an Assassin’s Creed series with Netflix and we look forward to developing the next saga in the Assassin’s Creed universe.

We’re excited to partner with Ubisoft and bring to life therich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin’s Creed  is beloved for.

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.”
