It looks like Ubisoft are in the works to make a TV series adaptation of one of their most popular games franchises ‘Assassin’s Creed’. Ubisoft employee Aymar Azaizia (head of content) confirmed that a TV series is on the way during a Reddit AMA. Although reluctant to share any specific details about what we can expect, he did state that “It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time to make sure we deliver something we can be proud of”. In addition to this, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed last year that the company is set to collaborate with the streaming service provider Netflix on an upcoming project. Though Ubisoft has yet to share any specific details regarding the premise of the series, it’s possible that they may be referring to the adaptation of their Assassin’s Creed titles.
It’s only been a few months since we’ve seen the popular game series branch out onto new territory; although the film adaption received mixed reviews and failed to break even during its release in theatres, a television series has the potential to accommodate a lot more content and character development.
Additional rumours regarding the AC’s next upcoming game title have been circulating the web. The most popular theory is that the next game time period will take place in ancient Egypt. Bear in mind that Ubisoft haven’t released a new game title since 2015, so with the additional development time, we’ll likely see some significant upgrades in the rumour game title ‘Assassin’s Creed: Empire’, which is rumoured to be release earlier that expected.
