Assassin's Creed Netflix

Put up your hoods and dive into a bale of hay: Assassin's Creed is getting a Netflix series.

Ubisoft has partnered with the on-demand streaming service to produce an original, live-action series based on the franchise. There aren't any details about the content of the show, but we do know that Ubisoft's Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik are onboard as Executive Producers.

The official blurb for the show reads as follows: "In this adaptation of the critically acclaimed video game franchise, a man on death row is rescued from execution by a mysterious organization".

Speaking to Variety, Netflix's Peter Friedlander says the company is "excited" to partner with Ubisoft on the series. "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," he says.

It's probably relatively far off, but it'll be interesting to see how the franchise translates to a TV show framework. Are you excited for an Assassin's Creed series? Watch out for hidden blades in the comments section below.
