Netflix Announces Assassin’s Creed Projects

This sounds great. Netflix today announced it has entered into an agreement with Ubisoft to develop content based on the international best-selling video game franchise Assassin’s Creed. The first series in development is slated to be an epic, genre-bending live action adaptation; a search is currently underway for a showrunner.

The story is too old to be commented.

Eh.
If it ends up good, they'll just cancel it.

The big difference is the game company has some sway. Netflix is also working on a Division series and you can bet Amazon would happily jump on them so if they pull the plug early things may change. It will be interesting to see how long they run with The Witcher and spin offs.

They havent canceled the Witcher yet (key word) but they did say they would only go 3-4 seasons of an original series.

I think Stranger Things is a key, if they go beyond the next season into 5 and such then who knows.

Stranger things may go longer, but I still expect Netflix will continue to cut off most shows after 3 or 4 seasons. It gets more expensive if a show is successful as the main players will expect more money.

Netflix reportedly borrowed Billions to make original content as they saw that as the key rather than paying things like 600 million for Friends and such. However Disney+ has drastically surpassed their first year expectations by the industry and Amazon is making huge inroads as they are no longer just a surplus of older and more obscure movies mixed in with some new releases. They have spent big as well on new content and have been very aggressively expanding. They also have the revenue stream from retail that Netflix does not have which will allow them to be aggressive in the future as well.

The only things I even use Netflix for at this point is Peeky Blinders, Stranger Things, Community, New Girl, and now Witcher.

Then the odd movie.

Ass Creed everywhere I look.

Also, remember the live-action movie? I wish I didn't...
