While much of the entertainment zeitgeist has followed the events of D23 today, Ubisoft Forward has also been chugging away with an array of announcements for their video game studio. Though one bit of news that will stir up some discussion is Ubisoft’s plans for the television platform.
It has been confirmed at the online showcase that a live-action Assassin’s Creed series is scheduled to be produced for Netflix. Head of Ubisoft Film and Television Jason Altman further elaborated on the planned series.
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.Jason Altman
The notion of a live-action Assassin’s Creed series is certainly not a brand new announcement. Word of a partnership between Ubisoft and Netflix can be traced all the way back to October 2020. Beyond the announcements that the series itself is happening, not much is known in terms of the narrative that Netflix will choose to adapt. Though hopefully for fans of the franchise, this new reconfirmation from Ubisoft is a promising sign that plans are beginning to actually move forward. If any further developments arise about this series, they will be reported on here at Murphy’s Multiverse.
