Assassin’s Creed’s Netflix Series Loses Its Showrunner

Jeb Stuart, the now ex-showrunner of the Assassin’s Creed Netflix series has revealed in a new interview with Collider that he’s no longer involved in the project.

In the interview, Stuart implied that the reason was because of a difference in vision. When asked about why he left, Stuart said:

“I think it was a little bit of a move of executives from LA to London, and it allowed the London group who, unfortunately, had to inherit my vision of what it was instead of getting to develop their own vision. So I think that’s fair. I know it’s going to be great whenever it comes out. I think the Ubisoft guys are fantastic. I think it’s a terrific franchise. It was just a good, mutual time to move on for both sides.”

The official announcement of the Assassin’s Creed Netflix series was made in September 2022 and was described as an “epic, genre-bending live-action adaptation”. It’s understood that the series is still early in development.

Ubisoft and Netflix have not yet announced who the new showrunner of the series will be.

Massive plans are in production for Assassin’s Creed, with a whole new lineup of games in development. Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is expected to release later this year is the first game to be released.

Insider Gaming sources have said that Mirage is scheduled to release with a tentative release date of August 2023.

The current Assassin’s Creed projects in development are:

  • Assassin’s Creed Mirage (Baghdad setting)
  • Assassin’s Creed Codename Red (Japan setting)
  • Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe (Central Europe setting)
  • Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade (Mobile/China setting)
  • Assassin’s Creed Invictus (Multiplayer)
  • Assassin’s Creed Project Nexus (VR)
  • Assassin’s Creed Netflix Series
