When it comes to adapting video games, TV shows appear to be the better choice than movies.

I think they were lucky with The Witcher series, so idk if they’ll succeed on an AC series too.

I thought for sure after the movie flopped that Ubisoft would give up on their plans for a live-action Ubisoft cinematic universe, but I guess not. Maybe the Watch Dogs, The Division, and Far Cry movies will still happen as well, either as movies or tv shows.
