After The Witcher (whose season 3 is badly crossed out) or Resident Evil et sa double serie, Netflix continues to adapt popular sagas. It is therefore the turn of Assassin’s Creed to be entitled to its own series in live-action (with real actors).
For the moment, only one logo is broadcast for this new 100% Netflix production. While Ubisoft is in full swing at the end of 2020 (launch of Watch Dogs Legion and D’AC Valhalla), the French have just signed to make the license Assassin’s Creed a series. This format seems to fit modern ambitions perfectly, and the failure of the 2016 film didn’t chill Ubisoft.
Michael Fassbender would not be back, nor Marion Cotillard. The two actors have not always had only nice words about the feature film, the opportunity for Netflix to cast new faces that will carry these 8 episodes of a series that one imagines “anthology”, that is to say with a new scenario at each change of season to correspond to the lore d’Assassin’s Creed.

Currently, the sagas Beyond Good and Evil and The Division already have films in the works thanks to a deal between Ubisoft and Netflix. Add to this a Splinter Cell series in cartoons, and you get a bright future for game adaptations.
In short, answer in 2021 since Assassin’s Creed Netflix version should not land anytime soon.
