There may be a video game series coming soon. Ubisoft is said to be currently in talks with Netflix for a TV series based on a game. It is presumed that it will be based on one of the developer's titles although it is unknown which is going to be adapted at this point.
The news comes from Reuters, which reported that Ubisoft Chairman and Chief Executive Yves Guillemot has mentioned about being in touch with Netflix over a series. He did not go into details, so speculations and rumors are what fans have for now.
Per Slashfilm, the company ventured into television back in 2013 when "Rabbids Invasion" was aired. Now on its third season, the series is based on the Raving Rabbids characters. Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed has also already been made into a movie, which is set to be released on Dec. 21.
Other titles that are getting the big screen treatment are Splinter Cell, The Division, Ghost Recon, Watch Dogs and Far Cry. Some speculations suggest that the Ubisoft-Netflix TV series would be based on one of these big franchises, should the collaboration materialize.
However, considering that the French developer has loads of other titles under its wing, it is too early to assume anything. Very few adaptations of video games have made a positive mark on fans. There is also what they call a "video game movie curse" that Assassin's Creed will have to break first.
Hopes are up for the video game film next month. If it somehow results in something positive, then fans may be able to hear more news about the Ubisoft-Netflix collaboration. As of now, there is no concrete evidence that a TV series is happening soon.
Meanwhile, Tom Clancy's The Division is getting the Survival DLC soon. Here are reasons why gamers should be excited.
