Netflix is Doing a Live-Action Assassin's Creed Series (As Well as the Anime)

Taking another stab at the stab-heavy series.

Three gosh-darn years ago, long before the big U was plagued with reports of sexual abuse and harassment (because those reports were still rolling in, real-time), Netflix "announced" that they were teaming up with Ubisoft to make an Assassin's Creed anime, akin to what they were doing with Castlevania. The news was met with moderate excitement, although I imagine that excitement would have been significantly dulled if people knew that three plus years later we still wouldn't have seen a title card for the show, let alone the show itself.

Anyway, it is 2020 now and us apparently no closer to that Assassin's Creed anime, you'd think the next thing to come out of Netflix's mouth on the subject would be an update on it. You'd think wrong, however, as Netflix just announced with Ubisoft that they're also doing an Assassin's Creed live-action series, because if there's no such thing as too much of a good thing, then they're willing to bet there's no such thing as too much of an okay thing.

We're not exactly swimming in details: the only thing we know is that Ubisoft's Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik will serve as Executive Producers.

Netflix's Peter Friedlander says:

“We’re excited to partner with Ubisoft and bring to life the rich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin’s Creed is beloved for. From its breathtaking historical worlds and massive global appeal as one of the best selling video game franchises of all time, 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.”


Okay, well, between this new live-action series (which I'm sure is a long ways off), the anime apparently in the works, and the movie (which is also available on Netflix), it seems like Ubisoft and Netflix are becoming quite close chums.

Makes you wonder what sort of sick business is going on behind the scene at Netflix, huh?
