An Assassin’s Creed TV Series Is In The Works

Aymar Azaizia, Ubisoft’s  head of content for the Assassin’s Creed franchise has revealed that a TV show is being worked on. He mentioned the project on a Reddit AMA but did not give any further details, so we don’t know if it will tie in with the movie, but as the show will almost certainly be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures the chances are quite high.

“It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wander if it’s on our plan… YES,” posted Aymar. It is known that Ubisoft were discussing a TV show based on one of their IPs with Netflix so this may be it.


Aymar also revealed and interesting tidbit of information about the “arm” version of animus seen in the movie, which was used rather than the versions we saw in the game.

The “chair version”, are safest, and if you want the full lenght theory on Animus, brace yourself.

When you are getting into an Animus machine, the way the time goes depends on how close you are to your ancestor. If you are using Helix and someone else memory, the timescale is 1:1

So if you want to dig and information but have no idea when it happened, it could take you months or years in the Animus, that’s why Abstergo is usually using Helix with masses, to process tons of data at once.

If you are in direct line, time could flies and a couple of hours in the simulation could allow you to process weeks of memories.

The chair VS standing versions are about allowing you, or even forcing you (with the arm), to sync and remain on sync with your ancestor. A way to guarantee that the subject will be efficient quickly, but the chances of triggering a bleeding effect, and hurting the psyche of a subject increases accordingly.

Therefore seeing Abstergo pushing people because they are rushed, not caring about frying their brain, and having a post trauma process in place seemed to work well for us.

I think it’s the first time I told anyone outside of the franchise about that :D

  1. It could be good, but it needs to have a defined ending. I’m getting sick of TV series that seem to be making it up as they go along, afraid of adding an ending so they can get recommissioned.

    • Worse than that is having what should be an ending, suddenly discovering someone wants another season, and then having to come up with something new when it should have all ended. Possibly with a really obvious hastily written 30 seconds of setting up another season that seems to just come out of nowhere. The “it’s all sorted, whatever peril there was has been dealt with, everyone’s happy, and by the way, this guy you’ve not met before looking a bit shifty?” ending. Grrr.

      These days though, lots of things that would probably never have been allowed to make more episodes somehow survive. Things that nobody watches or even hears about, but sales to Netflix and Amazon worldwide (and even deals with them to make more episodes) suddenly make it worth doing and they get an ending. Which seems to be leading to writers with a plan on what story they want to tell and how long it’ll take, knowing that they’ll probably be able to tell their story and end it at the right point.

      Unless it’s the BBC. They still seem incapable of seeing past the number of people watching it live and cancel things after half a dozen episodes.

  2. That he believes that the Assassin’s Creed movie was something they should be proud of is worrying..

  3. Two words:
