Ubisoft has shown a very eager interest into bringing their most prized franchises to other forms of media, most recently with the reveal of the upcoming Division movie which will be aired exclusively through Netflix as announced at this year’s Ubisoft press conference back in June. And while the publisher continues to work on games alongside the current projects for entertainment, there is still more that have yet to leave the basket.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Ubisoft Film & Television Paris managing Director Helene Juguet shared with the entertainment outlet that the publisher is looking to expand the French publisher’s lineup with a new project connected to the cybernetic and nostalgic Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon story expansion. Sharing that the name for this new series will be titled ‘Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe’ and will have a focused demographic towards young adults.
Delving deeper into what this project might be a lot on the company’s plate to translate to television seeing that many fans would still rank the 2013 DLC as one of the best expansions released from Ubisoft overall, where Juguet disclosed that Castlevania Producer Adi Shankar will be involved with the making of the upcoming show.
Adi is such a great fan of video games. We share the same culture and references. It’s been great to give him the freedom to do something very fresh and bold with our characters.
Following the release for the second season of Konami’s Netflix series, Shankar announced to be moving onto yet another project as he will be tackling Capcom’s Devil May Cry with him at the helm of this new series. Shankar’s role within the project has yet to be disclosed, but with him on board shows to be pushing the series in the right direction as for potential success looking at his current track record with video game entertainment.
