Announced by Netflix across their public channels, a new partnership with Ubisoft will produce a live-action Assassin’s Creed series for all to enjoy.
Ubisoft’s Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik will be serving as executive producers for the upcoming series. They’re dedicated to keeping the Assassin’s Creed universe alive, so don’t worry about the story losing its integral pieces when it’s translated onto the screen.
With its first game released in 2007, the Assassin’s Creed series has travelled a long journey. There’s been a lot of hype around the series recently due to the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and this announcement is just adding to the excitement.
Given that the previous attempt at a live-action Assassin’s Creed didn’t go very well, some fans have already expressed their concerns. However, Ubisoft and Netflix are confident that this adaption of the iconic series will wow the audience. Peter Friedlander stated that they plan to “bring to life the rich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin’s Creed is beloved for”.
Fans have been a huge driving force for the developers, so they’re very keen to see them happy. Friedlander continued to say about the development of the series, “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”.
