After the disappointing reception and returns of the Assassin’s Creed film last year, Ubisoft isn’t completely against more live-action adaptations. While it seems video games are still unable to work on film, they’re hoping television could do the trick.
While hopes for more films before Assassin’s Creed‘s release were high, low box office returns make for an unlikely comeback on film. However, during a Reddit AMA with head of content for Assassin’s Creed at Ubisoft, Aymar Azaizia, he hinted a television series is in the works.
It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wonder if it’s on our plan… YES
As the show seems to be only in the planning stage, it is unclear whether we’d see the show on television proper or a streaming service like Netflix. Last year Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said they were in talks with Netflix for some sort of series, but whether or not that is Assassin’s Creed is to be determined.
Netflix, HBO, FX, Hulu, Amazon, and AMC would likely be the best bets for the series due to the budget it would require.
5 Marvel Video Games We Would Love To See Get Made
The world of video games is no stranger to superheroes. There have been superhero games almost as long as there have been video games. They have had varying levels of quality and recently DC has been extremely successful with the Batman Arkham series as well as Injustice, but Marvel hasn’t had a game recently that has reached that level of success. Last week, Square Enix announced a new Avengers game that has the potential to be an original and fascinating new game, but there are still several games we would love to see tackled and some characters we would love to control in a new interactive environment on the newest console generation. So without much delay, here are 5 video games we would love to see get made.
