Netflix And Ubisoft In Talks For New Original TV Series

By November 8, 2016 No Comments


The company behind mega popular video games Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry has made it no secret they want to branch out beyond video games, and it’s starting to become a little more clear just how they might do that.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced this week that the company was indeed talking to Netflix about producing an original TV series based on one of their video game franchises.

It’s not clear what the new TV series would be about, or whether it would be animated or live action, but this wouldn’t be Ubisoft’s first branch into other forms of entertainment, as an Assassin’s Creed movie is due this December, and movie projects based on The Division and Splinter Cell are coming as well.

This also wouldn’t be Netflix’s first partnership with a game company, as the streaming giant recently launched a 13 episode series based on Skylanders Academy from Activision Blizzard Studios.

Netflix has been producing some great content of their own in recent months, and a show with characters from the Ubisoft universe would likely be a welcome addition.
