If you were disappointed with the Assassin’s Creed movie, maybe the TV series will redeem itself in your eyes.

Of course, there’s no way of knowing just yet if that will happen, because it’s not out yet, and probably won’t be for quite some time.

News of a series based on the franchise was confirmed by head of content for Assassin’s Creed, Aymar Azaizia, during an AMA on Reddit (thanks, Neowin).

“It’s like the movie, we will take our time, to make sure we deliver something we can be proud of,” he said. “But if you wonder if it’s on our plan, yes.”

No further details were provided, but back in November 2016, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the firm was in talks with Netflix on bringing one of its franchises to the service as a series.

Whether the Assassin’s Creed project is the same one Ubisoft Motion Pictures discussed with Netflix is not known; however, it sounds rather plausible.

The Assassin’s Creed film didn’t do so well with critics, but films based on The Division and Watch Dogs are still in the planning stages so it’s possible those may fare better.

Watch Dogs has reportedly been in the works since 2013. The only recent news we’ve heard was that it was still going ahead.
