More and more video game adaptations will be released soon on Netflix, with confirmed productions such as the animated series The Cuphead Show! , the CGI animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness or the recently announced Tomb Raider anime series, to give a few examples.
It’s been a while since Netflix announced the development of a series about Assassin’s Creed, one of the most important video game sagas right now. However, little has been known about this project, leading many to fear its possible cancellation. At the end of the day, it would not be the first time a project is announced and in the end things do not come to fruition.
However, from Ubisoft they confirm that the plans for an Assassin’s Creed animation series are still in force. Aymar Azaïzia, head of content for Assassin’s Creed, assured in an interview with Eurogamer that the project is still underway and that the team is currently working on it.
” It’s still active, it’s the guys who brought us the Raving Rabbids TV show, who also announced the animated series Far Cry. Those guys are really focusing on that. It’s not the next project that’s coming up, but it’s still in its infancy hands. It has not been parked, “explained the executive.
At the moment not many details are known about the Assassin’s Creed anime, except for the fact that its plot will tell an original story set within the universe of the franchise. We will have to be patient and wait for Ubisoft to advance us new data about the Netflix series.
