Gamers may soon see their favorite video games played by actors in live-action TV series. Game developer Ubisoft confirmed discussions with streaming service Netflix to launch series based on its popular games, potentially Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs.
Assassin’s Creed already entered the big screen several times in the past but most films received negative feedback from fans. Now, Ubisoft reportedly aims to place the game in small screens if its theatrical release in December turns out succesful.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot on Monday announced the company is “in talks with Netflix over a series,” reports Reuters. He said the TV series is part of Vivendi’s acquisition of extra stock shares in the company.
Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs 2 Hype To Lead TV Series
Reports claim Netflix may remake multiple Ubisoft titles. Fans speculate Assassin’s Creed could be the best pick because of its success as a video game.
The action-adventure game has been one of the most successful franchises of Ubisoft. The new Assassin’s Creed movie will also hit US theaters in December and it could easily continue into a TV series if the movie also receives positive feedback from fans.
If the Assassin’s Creed movie becomes another success, Ubisoft could then start banking on Netflix. Slash Film reports there are more titles that could also easily hit the small screen.
The gaming community may appreciate the arrival of Splinter Cell, The Division, Far Cry, Ghost Recon, and Watch Dogs as live-action TV series. Rumor also claims the said titles are in development for possible movie adaptations.
Watch Dogs 2 will come out Nov. 2016. It’s also described as one of the hottest Ubisoft titles and if it continues to be promising, a TV series may come in the future.
