Ubisoft has introduced it is teaming up with Atlas Entertainment to develop a TV sequence that adapts its upcoming pirate journey sport, Skull & Bones. In a slightly shocking vote of confidence, Ubisoft is beginning manufacturing on the present earlier than Skull & Bones even releases.
“Ubisoft is known for creating innovative video games that combine immense worlds with rich narratives,” Ubisoft director of improvement for tv Danielle Kreinik instructed The Hollywood Reporter. Kreinik is scheduled to be government producer on the brand new sequence alongside Ubisoft movie and tv head Jason Altman.
The Skull & Bones TV sequence is described as a female-driven drama that takes place in the identical setting and time interval as the sport: the Indian Ocean on the finish of the golden age of piracy. Amanda Segal, who’s beforehand been an government producer for Person of Interest and The Mist, is scheduled to write down the sequence’ pilot episode.
Skull & Bones is not the primary online game Ubisoft has tailored for different media. In 2016, Assassin’s Creed received its personal live-action movie starring Michael Fassbender. That identical 12 months, Ubisoft introduced The Division could be getting a film as properly, which can star Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain. The Division film is being each written and directed by Oscar winner Stephen Gaghan, and Ubisoft has confirmed it’s “well on the way.” Ubisoft’s Women’s Film and Television Fellowship is creating additional adaptations as properly, together with Child of Light and Werewolves Within.
Skull & Bones builds on what made Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag nice, with its surprisingly deep ship-to-ship combat. One of Skull & Bones’ modes, known as The Hunting Grounds, is a PvPvE shared-open world competitors “where every player encounter matters.” In this mode, you sail the Indian Ocean and loot service provider ships, arrange commerce routes, or assault different vessels. You can group up with others to tackle extra formidable threats, or betray the gamers you encounter and steal away their treasure.
Skull & Bones is scheduled to launch for Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2019.
