Netflix announced on Tuesday that it has entered into an agreement with game company Ubisoft to develop content based on the best-selling video game franchise.

The deal will include live-action, animated, and anime series.

“Netflix will be developing an ‘Assassin’s Creed’ live-action series. Ubisoft’s Jason Atman and Danielle Kreinik will serve as Executive Producers,” Netflix announced on Twitter.

Netflix said it will bring to life the “rich, multilayered storytelling that ‘Assassin’s Creed’ is beloved for.”

The action-adventure video game was launched in 2007 and has sold over 155 million games worldwide. 

Netflix revealed a live-action take on beloved video game “Resident Evil” earlier this year and found success with its adaptation of “The Witcher,” which is based on a fantasy book series popularized via video games.
