There's been rumblings of an Assassin's Creed TV show for a while now, but today it's been made official: Assassin's Creed is getting an original anime series. Following the success of the Assassin's Creed feature-length film adaptation, Ubisoft has conscripted film producer Adi Shankar to "create an original story set in an anime series."

 

Shankar, who's known for his work producing films like The Grey and Dredd, is currently working on Castlevania's anime adaptation at Netflix's behest.

 

The streaming giant will also make a live-action series based on The Witcher books, which have been made into a million-dollar gaming franchise.

 

Shankar says that the Assassin's Creed anime will be his "next project," so it's possible it won't release until 2018 or beyond when Castlevania wraps up.
