Assassin’s Creed was first launched in 2007 and has since become one of the most popular games in the world. The video game series was earlier adapted into a film in 2016 with Michael Fassbender in the lead role.

We’re thrilled to create an Assassin’s Creed series with Netflix and we look forward to developing the next saga in the Assassin’s Creed universe.”
