It looks like renowned producer Adi Shankar ain’t just making a Castlevania animated series. This is because he’s also planning one for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. Shankar himself revealed on Facebook that Ubisoft reached out to him to make an Assassin’s Creed series.
In his post, Shankar said:
“I’m happy to let you guys know that I’ve selected my next project! I played the first edition of Assassin’s Creed the year I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dream. At that moment I knew absolutely no one in the industry and could never have imagined that one day Ubisoft would ask me to take the world of Assassin’s Creed and create an original story set in it as an anime series. If anyone tells you not to follow your passion in life they are wrong.”
As for Ubisoft, IGN reported that they told them:
“We are working with Adi Shankar on some projects, and will have more to share at a later date.”
So far, they haven’t revealed any more details, so it looks like we would have to wait for more announcements. The franchise recently received a live-action adaptation starring Michael Fassbender. However, the film didn’t fare well in the box office. It also received mixed reviews from critics.
