Assassin's Creed Live-Action Show Heading to Netflix

Ubisoft

On Sept 10, Ubisoft Forward confirmed the long-rumored Assassin's Creed Mirage, the next main entry into the RPG series. Set to take place in 9th century Baghdad, the story focuses on Basim Ibn Is'haq, a character first introduced in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The game is reported to be set 20 years prior to the events of Valhalla.

Aside from the next main entry, Ubisoft also gave fans a glimpse at upcoming future games, including Assassin's Creed Codename RED which will be set in Japan, followed by Assassin's Creed Codename HEXE.

But outside of games, Ubisoft announced that they would be partnering with Netflix to create a new Assassin's Creed live-action series, and is also developing an Assassin's Creed mobile game exclusively for Netflix members.

Ubisoft has yet to reveal any additional details surrounding the new show. It's unclear which time period the show will be set, whether it will be based on existing characters or be an original story altogether. As for cast, it's still too early to say.

Netflix and Ubisoft are partnering to bring three exclusive Ubisoft mobile games to Netflix members: a Valiant Hearts sequel, a new roguelite-inspired Mighty Quest, and an original Assassin's Creed game. The upcoming mobile games, however, will be available for Netflix members to download at no extra charge, with no ads or in-app purchases, through the Netflix mobile app.
