Heavyweight talent attached.
Ubisoft and Netflix are teaming up to release an anime series and a feature film based on two of their properties the two companies announced this week.
Variety led the charge with their exclusive reveal of a Splinter Cell anime series for the streaming service. They report that John Wick writer Derek Kolstad. This series isn’t tied to the film that was announced several years ago and effectively abandoned. Still, it’s likely to have all the stealth and subterfuge fans of the series have long clamoured for, which has previously led to the creation of successful novelizations and a longstanding series of games.
Cult classic Beyond Good & Evil is receiving a film treatment with Detective Pikachu director Rob Letterman. The space-faring puzzle adventure is in development but little other information is known. Netflix did release a piece of concept art in a tweet announcing the project that helps give a sense of how they envision the world:
While neither project is dated if you want a fill of Ubisoft on Netflix you can always watch a documentary on the making of For Honor on the streaming service.
