Assassin’s Creed TV series could be in development
The PAX East Panel, “The Assassin’s Creed Movie: A Leap of Faith,” was mostly like a real-life DVD extras segment. Hosted by IGN’s Naomi Kyle, the panel featured Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Head of content, Aymar Azaïzia, actress Michelle Lin (who played Lin in the movie), and weapons creator Tim Wildgoose.
For most of the panel, the discussion revolved around what went into creating the movie, the experience filming in several locations, and the training involved for creating the action scenes. We were shown behind-the-scenes footage that will be featured on the upcoming DVD release as well as a deleted scene that featured of the game franchise’s favorite assassin’s including Lin in full Shao Jun garb.
While the panel offered interesting tidbits about the movie here and there, it seemed more like a promo for the DVD which drops on March 21.
However, when Kyle asked Azaïzia what medium they would be exploring next for the franchise, he said that they’re considering creating an Assassin’s Creed television series. Discussions are very early so there wasn’t anything he shared in terms of storyline, network, live action or animated, or time table of when a TV series would launch. Last year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced that they were in talks with Netflix for an upcoming series. It’s sounding like we could see Assassin’s Creed on Netflix in the near future.
