A live-action series based on the Assassin's Creed video game franchise is in development at Netflix, and the streamer also has new animated and anime shows in the works as part of a major content deal with Ubisoft.

The live-action "genre-bending adaptation" will be first out of the gate, and a showrunner is currently being sought. Ubisoft Film & Television’s Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik are on board as executive producers.

"For more than 10 years, millions of fans around the world have helped shape the Assassin’s Creed brand into an iconic franchise," said Altman, who is head of Ubisoft Film and Television Los Angeles. “We’re thrilled to create an Assassin’s Creed series with Netflix and we look forward to developing the next saga in the Assassin’s Creed universe."

"We’re excited to partner with Ubisoft and bring to life the rich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin’s Creed is beloved for,” added Peter Friedlander, vp originals at Netflix. “From its breathtaking historical worlds and massive global appeal as one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time, we are committed to carefully crafting epic and thrilling entertainment based on this distinct IP and provide a deeper dive for fans and our members around the world to enjoy."

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. The property was previously adapted for the big screen in 2016, but the Michael Fassbender-led movie was not very well received.
