‘Assassin’s Creed’ TV Series: What to Expect after the Movie Failure

By Michelle Guanzon / 2017.04.19

Latest news confirmed that after extending into a movie last year, the “Assassin’s Creed” TV series is currently in the works.

The news first broke out after the Head of Content of “Assassin’s Creed,” Aymar Azaizia told fans during the Reddit AMA on March that a television series is already approved. He added that Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot is also in talks with Netflix regarding the planned show.

It can be recalled that the “Assassin’s Creed” movie was released last 2016 starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Ctillard, Brendan Glesson, Jeremy Irons, Michael K. Williams, and Charlotte Rampling. It was also noted that the movie received negative reviews from movie critics and only grossed $241 million worldwide despite its massive budget production.

Still, fans can look forward to the television adaptation of the show as per Azaizia, the people behind “Assasin’s Creed” will take their time to make sure they deliver something that is worth the wait and something they can be proud of.

"We see that the video game industry is moving in that direction — where you have better graphics, better-animated characters, better AI…Movies and TV series allow us to amortize the cost of developing those characters and those worlds on more than one media,” Guillemot also added.

He also added that their goal is to improve everything. Though some people may not be surprised with some of the plot as they know the “Assassin’s Creed” universe, the CEO said their logic in learning will help them improve and make a better universe for its fan base.

While it was confirmed that a series is already in the works, the team has not provided any details as to what the show will be about.

According to a spokesperson from Ubisoft, the team is still looking for ways to grow and expand the “Assassin’s Creed” TV series story and its universe, but they cannot share anything yet aside from what the CEO of the company mentioned.
