A live-action TV series adaptation of the game is first on the line and is currently in the works. Ubisoft Film & Television’s Executive Producers Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik is looking for a showrunner for the series. It was in 2017 when Ubisoft voiced its plans for an Assassin’s Creed TV series and reached Netflix for an agreement talk, and it's just this year that the agreement was made into action.

In July 2017, Adi Shankar revealed he would be creating the series, which would be in the anime format. The series, which will feature an original story from Shankar, will share the same universe as the other media of the franchise. There are still no concrete plans on when will the anime and animated series of the franchise be started. It may be until the live-action series goes public.

The Assassin’s Creed franchise has sold more than 155 million games worldwide since it first launched in 2007, becoming one of the best-selling series in video game history.
