Fans heavily anticipated the Assassin’s Creed TV show. No formal plot for the series has as of yet been disclosed. However, it is probable that the programme will centre on brand-new characters linked to the franchise’s main plot and some of its most important characters.
Moving forward, Valiant Hearts 2, Mighty Quest 2, and a new Assassin’s Creed game are among the several games for Netflix Games that the publisher revealed as part of Ubisoft Forward today (no date). None of these games will have commercials or in-app purchases.
Mike Verdu, the head of gaming at Netflix, made an appearance in a video at Ubisoft Forward. However, he made no specific mention of the upcoming Ubisoft games on Netflix. By the end of 2022, Netflix hopes to have a catalogue of more than 50 games accessible to users, and collaborating with companies like Ubisoft seems to be one method to achieve that goal.
Along with collaborating with major studios like Ubisoft, Netflix has also been active in acquiring game development companies like Boss Fight Entertainment, Next Games, and Night School Studio. Ubisoft has recently made significant investments in its mobile development initiatives, and the company is now working on both The Division Resurgence and Rainbow Six Mobile. Even though Assassin’s Creed is the company’s second attempt at entering the Android game market, none of the previous attempts succeeded where the primary entries have.
Assassin’s Creed Rebellion, a role-playing adventure game featuring chibi-styled characters where players may gather over 50 assassins and accomplish tasks to overthrow the Templar Order, was one of Ubisoft’s most recent mobile releases in the series in 2018.
It is encouraging to see how Ubisoft is extending its material into the entertainment business with the rumoured Assassin’s Creed television series, regardless of the mobile releases. This Ubisoft Forward has proven quite promising for both the company and the fans. Although no specific dates for the game releases have been announced, we will update you as soon as we get the details.
