Netflix provides a replenishment in the genre of video game adaptations after “The Witcher” as the streaming service is also developing a series format for “Assassin’s Creed” franchise. Together with Ubisoft, the french company behind the video game franchise, Netflix is ​​planning “an epic live-action adaptation,”. A short teaser of the upcoming project was published on the official Twitter Netflix.

Peter Friedlander, Netflix’s vice president of original series, has made the following statement to accompany the announcement of the live-action series of ‘Assassin’s Creed’:

We’re excited to collaborate with Ubisoft and bring to life the rich and multi-layered narrative that ‘Assassin’s Creed’ is beloved for. From its impressive historical worlds and global mass appeal as one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time, we are committed to carefully crafting this epic and exciting entertainment based on distinctive intellectual property and providing a profound journey for fans and our members around the world to enjoy.

The Netflix project is not the first adaptation of the acclaimed Ubisoft game series. In 2016, a film was released with Michael Fassbender in the title role, which failed to gain recognition from either critics or audiences.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft has not provided a background for the story that will be presented in the Netflix original version of Assassin’s Creed. They only mention that the story presented will be completely new, like in the first film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed.

Assassin’s Creed is a Ubisoft franchise that puts the player in the shoes of several fictional characters in real moments in human history, such as Renaissance Italy, Victorian England or the US independence movements. Blending real elements with fictional creations, Assassin’s Creed tells the story of a secret and long-lived war between the Knights Templar.

While we wait for the series, the Assassin’s Creed franchise will soon have another game in its numbers: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released on November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, PC and Xbox Series S / X.
