Castlevania Producer Working on Assassin’s Creed Anime Series

This coming Friday sees the release of the animated adaptation of Konami’s Castlevania, launching on Netflix with four episodes. The producer, however, is already on his way with a new project—and he appears to be stuck in the video game realm. Not that we’re complaining.

Adi Shankar took to Facebook to let fans know that he’s currently working with Ubisoft to develop an animated Assassin’s Creed series, which will be an original story and not an adaptation of an existing plot from one of the games.

“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.”

Will the ongoing interest in Assassin’s Creed and the success of the franchise mean we get to see an Assassin’s Creed title on the Nintendo Switch? Keep those fingers crossed, folks.
