Ubisoft has announced that it is partnering with Netflix to develop a new Assassin’s Creed series and a mobile game for the platform.
The Ubisoft Forward digital event showcased many new updates for several upcoming titles, including Skull & Bones and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.
However, the most substantial updates came towards the end of the presentation when Ubisoft revealed five new Assassin’s Creed titles in the works.
One of those titles came with a tease for a new Assassin’s Creed mobile game being developed for Netflix, as well as a live-action series.
Ubisoft partners with Netflix
Marc-Alexis Côté, executive producer of Assassin’s Creed, showed up to provide some details about Ubisoft’s upcoming partnership with the streaming platform.
Côté confirmed that a new mobile game is in development for Netflix’s ‘platform’.
Sadly, these were the only details Côté was able to reveal about the mobile game, but it looks like it will be heavily tied to Netflix itself, likely through the use of its phone app.
Ubisoft has ventured into mobile games before with Assassin’s Creed, with the 2018 mobile strategy RPG Assassin’s Creed Rebellion.
Of course, it remains to be seen what lessons the team learned from that foray into the mobile space.
For mobile users, go to 1:53:35 in the video to find the relevant information.
As for the TV show, details remain scarce about the upcoming series, but Côté revealed that the company is developing the series together with Netflix and showrunner Jeb Stuart.
Movie buffs will likely recognize Stuart as the author of the 1988 action film Die Hard and 1993’s The Fugitive.
Additionally, Côté said the series will be an “epic, genre-bending, live-action adaptation of” [Ubisoft’s] series of video games.
Despite Netflix unveiling this live-action Assassin’s Creed series two years ago, Côté said the series is still “early in development.”
Hopefully fans won’t have to wait too long to see what Ubisoft and Netflix have in store for the Assassin’s Creed series.
