Showrunner for the Castlevania Netflix series, Adi Shankar has revealed that he is currently working on an Assassin’s Creed anime. Even though it will be based on Ubisoft’s wildly popular franchise, the anime will be telling an entirely original story. But as of now, nothing has been said about its title, premiere date, network or cast.

Being a big fan of the series, Shankar says, “I played the first edition of Assassin’s Creed the year I moved to Los Angeles. At that moment, I knew absolutely no one in the industry and could never have imagined that one day, Ubisoft would ask me to take the world of Assassin’s Creed and create an original anime story set in it as an anime series.”

Here’s his full statement that was released on Facebook:
