An animated series based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse will make its Netflix debut this Friday, July 7. The Castlevania series was produced by Adi Shankar, and earlier today, he popped up on Facebook to announce his project… an animated series set within the world of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed.
Unlike Castlevania, Shankar’s next series won’t be a direct adaptation, and will tell an original tale in the Assassin’s Creed universe:
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 of now, there’s no release date for Shankar’s Assassin’s Creed series, but it’s probably still quite a ways out. And that’s because Shankar will next be shepherding the secibd season of Castlevania, which will be available on Netflix sometime in 2018.
