What To Expect From the Future of Video Game Adaptations and When to Expect It
TBD: Assassin’s Creed
The Assassin’s Creed franchise had a big 2016, as this was the year that its first live-action adaptation premiered in theaters, as well as the time Netflix and Ubisoft struck a deal to bring the franchise to the streaming service in animated form. With the poor reception the movie had, this deal eventually grew into a larger one. In October 2020, it was announced that Netflix would not only be developing an anime based on the game but also an animated and live-action series.
It’s still not clear if the series is to adapt a storyline directly taken from the games or if it will create one of its own like 2016’s Assassin’s Creed did. As in the numerous sequels the original game had, it’s a franchise that allows for incredible creative freedom since you can choose any location and any time period to be the background of the story that one wishes to tell.
