Assassin's Creed Is Becoming An Anime Series

Posted by Nur Hazelien Shahira 20/07/2017 Console News,

Less than a year since the release of the Assassin's Creed movie adaption, now Ubisoft is moving forward by making its hit game franchise in the form of anime series. 



The producer of the Netflix's Castlevania, Adi Shankar has made an announcement on Facebook, announced that Ubisoft approached him to create an "original story" of Assassin's Creed. He can pick from a wealth of storyline of Assassin's Creed. Shankar is known for his work on 2012's  Dredd,  2011's Machine Gun Preacher and by looking at his works, fans can be expecting him to produce an eye-catching roster of talent of Assassin's Creed. 


I’m happy to let you guys know that I’ve selected my next project! I played the first edition of Assassin’s Creed the year I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dream. At that moment I knew absolutely no one in the industry and could never have imagined that one day Ubisoft would ask me to take the world of Assassin’s Creed and create an original story set in it as an anime series. If anyone tells you not to follow your passion in life they are wrong.


There are no other details about the project has been shared. The Assassin's Creed known for never been connected to a single character or era, so there is a chance that the Castlevania producer will be come up with an entirely new protagonist and era for the setting. According to Polygon, Shankar will be using a storytelling approach with the characters and worlds in the Assassin's Creed universe similar to what he did to Castlevania. The series will be about more than assassins hoping around town and bringing down people who stand in their way.


“In the same way that Castlevania is about generations of a family across different time periods, Assassin’s Creed is more about a warring ideology. That is what Assassin’s Creed represents, that both (Assassins and Templars) have their own hypocrisies built into their own ideologies — and I want to explore those different, conflicting ideologies. That is the core mechanic of what makes Assassin’s Creed work.”


The next Assassin's Creed video game, Origins, is coming on October 27 to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The new game is set in Egypt.
