Netflix: Animated series for Splinter Cell, Far Cry and Blood Dragon


Ubisoft and Netflix want to jointly convert even more of the company's game series into an animated series. As part of Geeked Week, adaptations of Splinter Cell, Far Cry and Blood Dragon - the famous expansion of Far Cry 3 - were presented in the broadcast of Netflix. Most recently, a live-action project and an animated production for Assassin's Creed have been announced. There are no start dates yet.

Rumors about a series related to Splinter Cell already surfaced in July 2020. Now the project has been officially confirmed by Ubisoft. This is Sam Fisher's next appearance outside of a new main series game that fans have longed for for many years. The series will be written by Derek Kolstad, who also worked on John Wick. Netflix and Ubisoft have so far not revealed any details about the upcoming adaptation of Far Cry.

However, there was a little more detailed information for the upcoming project around Blood Dragon. The animated show will start on Netflix under the name "Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix" and accompany the protagonist on a parallel version of the earth. The super soldier managed to escape from the army of the tech company Eden. But before he retires with his friend Alex, he wants to try his hand at one last big robbery. Adi Shankar will be responsible for the show. You can find the excerpt with all Ubisoft announcements in the livestream for Geeked Week from minute 26.

Netflix and CD Projekt Red are hosting a 'The Witcher' convention on July 9th

The Witcher fans, you may want to turn down any and all invitations to hang out on July 9th. Yes, it's a Friday, but it's also when Netflix and CD Projekt Red are holding a virtual The Witcher convention with events that tackle both the games and live action series. The developer says it won't be announcing a new game during WitcherCon, but you can expect standard convention fare. There will be deep dives into the making of (as well as behind-the-scenes footage for) not just the show and the games, but also the anime film and franchise merch. 

The convention will also feature interactive panels that put a spotlight on people who brought the games and the show to life. Plus, there will be expert explorations of The Witcher lore. WitcherCon will stream on Netflix and CD Projekt Red's YouTube and Twitch channels. The event will be available for streaming at 1PM ET on July 9th, but there will be a second streaming airing at 9PM with content unique to it. 

In addition to announcing WitcherCon, Netflix has also released a trailer for The Witcher's second season. While it's only a few seconds long, it teases Ciri's story in season 2, which (unfortunately) doesn't have a premiere date yet.
