Is a great era of live-action adaptations from video game stories about to begin?
Netflix has struck a deal with Ubisoft to develop live-action, animated, and anime series based on the global best-selling video game franchise Assassin's Creed.
Assassin's Creed launched back in 2007, and has since gone on to become one of the best-selling video game series in history, with over 155 million units sold worldwide. One example of when it did work: Netflix's The Witcher, the hit Henry Cavill-led fantasy adventure series based on both the popular video game franchise and books by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Besides Amazon and Apple, Ford Motor, General Electric and Google's parent company, Alphabet, are also on the docket. The benchmark Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day at 27,685, down 650 points from last week's close.
Netflix shared their sentiment and excitement about their new agreement by saying "We're excited to partner with Ubisoft and bring to life the rich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin's Creed is beloved for". Ubisoft's Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik of the company's Film & Television department will be its executive producers, but a showrunner or script writer has yet to be revealed.
Considering the streaming service has done a good job of bringing the world of The Witcher to the screen, here's hoping they can do a similar job with the Assassin's Creed world - because, considering that the set-up takes in ancient hit-squads, sci-fi nonsense about being ported back into the bodies of your ancient ancestors, and pulling off sneaky murders, Kurzel's film somehow ended up being truly, deathly tiresome. In that adaptation, Michael Fassbender portrayed a protagonist named Cal Lynch and his ancestor Aguilar, an assassin in 15th-century Spain.
Beyond this initial announcement, the Assassin's Creed series is in the early stages of development - so don't expect to see something until late 2021 at the earliest, and more likely in 2022.
