Netflix is really diving into the gaming industry as they proceed with another adaptation once again. This time around, we’re going to see an Assassin’s Creed Netflix adaptation and fans of Ubisoft’s acclaimed franchise are excited.
Netflix has been hard-pressed on tapping into the gaming industry. The Witcher’s success might’ve sparked their new strategy for making great shows. Now, it’s been confirmed that an Assassin’s Creed Netflix series is in the works. Here’s everything we know so far.
Netflix series coming
As per Netflix, they are working in tandem with Ubisoft to create a variety of projects. One of which is a live action series about Assassin’s Creed. It will be a series made with the help of Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik from Ubisoft who will serve as executive producers.
The inclusion of the two Ubisoft higher ups gave fans a sigh of relief. At least there are Ubisoft people who can guide Netfix in the development of the upcoming series. As much as possible, fans want Netflix to stay loyal to the source material. They are also expecting a lot considering the success of The Witcher.

What’s the story
We’ve yet to know more about the Assassin’s Creed Netflix series. All fans know however, is that they want Netflix to create a series as close to the source material as possible. There are many games in the franchise already that the producers can gather inspiration from.
The Assassin’s Creed movie a few years back wasn’t as well-received but players appreciated the loyalty to the franchise. It will be tough for the producers to achieve the same level of success as The Witcher Netflix series but that should be the main goal of the producers.
Fans are hoping that Netflix will focus on the the story of the assassin’s rather than Abstergo and their technology. That being said, fans would also want the first Assassin’s Creed game as the basis for the series. This means making Altair as the lead of the first season of the series. We’ll hear more about this soon.
There are many possibilities for the Assassin’s Creed Netflix adaptation but fans mostly want to see it blend well. With such a rich lineup of lore and history behind it, it’s hard to pick which one Netflix will choose to recreate. For now, fans are hoping that they stick to the source material at least.
