Netflix has proven again and again that it’s capable of creating great original content. The company plans to focus more on providing even more original content, because that is where the future is now that everyone is offering streaming services.
According to a new report, we might soon get to see another new series that features characters from the Ubisoft universe. It wouldn’t surprise anyone, I don’t think. This is intriguing. I wonder what property it is.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that the company is in talks with Netflix about a series. He also addressed the speculation about the company’s future, stating his desire to keep Ubisoft independent even as a major shareholder named Vivendi continues to mount pressure to take over the company.
Vivendi’s stake in Ubisoft is more than 20 percent right now. It has been gradually increasing its stake in the company trying to gain more influence, but Vivendi has said that it’s not going to make a hostile bid for Ubisoft. Ubisoft has already dabbled in the film business so it was only a matter of time before it turned its attention to TV. If they do things right, it could be a great money maker for them. We don’t have any details at this point, so nothing is known about this original series. Stay tuned.
