Another good news for all Assassin’s Creed lovers, following the release of a movie based on the popular video game starring Michael Fassbender, Ubisoft might soon release a TV show on Netflix.

Ubisoft

In a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit conducted by Aymar Azazia, the head of content for Assassin’s Creed at Ubisoft, it was revealed that a TV show is being discussed.

It is unclear where the TV show is going to be aired, but going by a Reuters report, Yves Guillemot, chairman and chief executive at Ubisoft, was planning to launch a TV show and was in talks with Netflix.

In reply to a query regarding an Assassin’s Creed TV show on the Reddit AMA thread, Azazia said, “It’s like the movie guys, we will take out time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wonder if it’s on our plan… Yes.”

Reportedly, Assassin’s Creed TV show rumours surfaced as the French gaming company’s Founding members grew concerned over Vivendi’s increasing shares in their company.

In a bid to maintain majority control over Ubisoft, the founding members have been exploring more avenues and a partnership with Netflix for a TV show of the immensely popular video game might be beneficial for the company as well as the video game brand.

Assassin’s Creed is Ubisoft’s most popular title and capitalising on its name seems to be a wise move by the company owners as an increasing number of video games have already been turned into movies, including the one in question.

Video games being turned into TV shows seems to be the new trend especially since there are plenty of streaming services to choose from and each one of them wants something unique.

Though there is no other confirmation from either Ubisoft or Netflix at this point, Azazia dropped a big hint for all the video game lovers as an Assassin’s Creed TV series is a win-win for Ubisoft, Netflix as well as the fans of the title.
