Far Cry 3, Rayman, and Watch Dogs shows to form Ubisoft TV multiverse


But where’s the live action Siege show?

Producer Adi Shankar, known for his animated adaptation of Castlevania and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed show, is also expected to begin production on a series based on Ubisoft’s 2012 open-world adventure Far Cry 3, specifically its tongue-in-cheek “Blood Dragon” sub-universe.

Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe is still in its early stages, but the animated series is expected to help kickstart a “multiverse” of sorts, entirely comprised of Ubisoft adaptations. Other franchises from the publisher’s portfolio expected to hit the small screen include a Rayman animated series, a tween/teen friendly Watch Dogs show, and even a series based on mobile game Hungry Shark, though details are incredibly slim on all of the above.

Despite all of this incoming idiot box programming, there is currently no sign of a high-intensity, Sicario-style Rainbow Six Siege series, which is a shame. Make the call, Ubisoft. I’d like to play Ela, I think you’ll find my fee fair and affordable.
