Following the release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla this past November, the Ubisoft-published franchise faced an influx of users unseen before. In that, the game welcomed more than double the number of units sold already in contrast to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in that same period. So where else can the series potentially thrive as well?
In that, the firm is also pursuing a Netflix live-action show as well. Although not much detail can be spared on the project, this is certainly not its first tapping into a live-action release. Previously in 2016, a live-action film starring Michael Fassbender hit the silver screen. It was reported that a trilogy was planned, but a follow-up has yet to be provided since then.
But, Assassin’s Creed is now pursuing books. Yes, there is already lore-filled paperback entries, but this new endeavor is in collaboration with Hachette Heroes, the parent company that owns the Mister Men and Little Miss book series. The new partnership will intertwine both franchises into one with new children’s books on the way.
By mixing the Assassin’s Creed sense of adventure and history with the colorful and delightful designs of the Little Mr. Men, these books will appeal to both young and adult readers. Follow Mister Ezio, Little Miss Kassandra, and Little Miss Eivor, as they each try to complete their own missions in the first three books of this series!
Although not much else is provided on when the books will be releasing, Ubisoft does press that there is 6 volumes in total planned to ship from the new agreement. This is certainly not Ubisoft’s first approach to welcoming its series to a younger demographic. In that, the firm is already working with Netflix for a Watch Dogs animated show alongside Hungry Shark & Rayman shows as well.
Additionally, there is also a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon television series also underway as well. Although aimed for young adults, the production is said to be helmed by Castlevania executive producer Adi Shankar. You can read the full report by heading here.
