Netflix To Launch A Live-Action 'Assassin's Creed' Series Desere Davis Published in Oct 2020 / Updated in Oct 2021 Fans of the ever-popular fantasy action game series Assassin's Creed will soon see it come to life on their screens. Netflix will launch a live-action series based on the highly successful game, and it's likely to be epic. The streaming service had done this before with The Witcher, though the series was less based on the game and more on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski. The official announcement was made recently though it is not clear when the series will air. Fans are not sure if they should be feeling excited and a bit of dread. The production can easily deliver an amazing show but it can just as easily flop. The head of Ubisoft Film & Television, Jason Altman, has stated that they are excited to develop the next saga in Assassin's Creed's universe. What To Expect Assassin's Creed is one of the most successful games in the world Secret societies, ancient worlds, and fabulous cloaks - that is what Assassin's Creed players have grown used to. The excitement surrounding the upcoming series is sure to leave admirers on the edge of their seats. Fans can expect to see breath-taking historical worlds, multi-layered storytelling, and stunning visual effects. Netflix and Ubisoft announced that they would work together on multiple projects. The entertainment giants are planning to dive into the dynamic stories on offer from iconic video games. The deal between Netflix and Ubisoft will see more than just the planned live-action adaptation. There is talk of animated series and anime (Japanese animation) series based on Assassin's Creed. The live-action series is just the start, it seems. High Hopes Everyone is hoping that this adaptation will do a lot better than the game's first try at bringing it to the big screen. In 2016, Michael Fassbender starred in the Assassin's Creed movie. It was a disappointment and managed to lose money instead of bringing it in. Michael played the role of Callum Lynch, a convict on death row in the 21st century, and Aguilar de Nehra, an assassin active during the 1478 Spanish Inquisition. The film was different from the original story and tried to make it more relevant, which is likely why it was so disliked. Netflix could be just what is needed - the streaming service did a great job with The Witcher and Castlevania. However, only time will tell whether Netflix's Assassin's Creed series will be a hit or a miss. For now, lovers of the game can get excited about Assassin's Creed Valhalla. News of the new addition to the franchise's release in October is something they can look forward to. It will be available on PC and consoles.
