For the moment being, it was expected that the only plans for Ubisoft with the Assassin’s Creed property was to ship the November-scheduled Assassin’s Creed Valhalla next month. But of course, there is plenty that can come to fruition for the franchise based off the success of the series which started well over a decade ago. Now, there is a new television show underway.
As you might expect with many projects that breaks from its initial medium to film/television, the announcement comes from a new deal between Ubisoft and Netflix to properly translate the video game into live-action. However, while the production will not be a computer-generated endeavor, there is no word as of yet on the casting for the project.
Even more, details on what the setting will be – which is a strong characteristic for the series – have yet to be shared either. But for now, Netflix has spared that Ubisoft Film & Television’s Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik will both be posed as executive producers for the project.

To many fans of the series, many should remember that last endeavor Ubisoft pursued with Assassin’s Creed: that being the titular film that release in 2016. Starring recognized actor Michael Fassbender, the motion picture was expected to break into a trilogy, but the pursuit never materialized into such.
In the past few weeks regarding Netflix and video game-centered projects, the firm has been working closely with Capcom on two Resident Evil projects. The first being Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a CGI film which tells a new tale of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. The second is a live action series with Supernaural writer Andrew Dubb penning the script.
