Watch Dogs Coming Soon to Tweens
Ubisoft is following up on their animated show Rabbids Invasion with several new shows based on their popular games. According to an exclusive at the Hollywood Reporter, four different animated shows are currently in the works. Each is based on or inspired by Ubisoft's games, Watch Dogs, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Rayman, Hungry Shark.
Watch Dogs Inspired Tween Show
The Watch Dogs inspired show doesn't have a name yet, but will focus on a teenaged hacker solving crimes at her middle school. The animated show is targeted toward a younger audience similar to Rabbids Invasion, focusing on tweens. Aside from the concept art below, there isn't much known yet. Ubisoft stated directly regarding this show,
"To clarify, the animated television show involving hacking is inspired by the themes and ideas of the Watch Dogs brand but it is not set in the same universe or tied to it directly."
Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe
The Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon show is named Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe. Fans of the Netflix Castlevania show will be happy to know the executive producer is behind this one. Adi Shankar behind both Castlevania and Devil May Cry on Netflix is partnering with Ubisoft. The Hollywood Reporter mentions Captain Laserhawk will be a young-adult series.
"Adi is such a great fan of video games. We share the same culture and references," Ubisoft film & television managing director, Helene Juguet said to Hollywood Reporter. "It's been great to give him the freedom to do something very fresh and bold with our characters."
This isn't the first time there has been talk around Shankar working with Ubisoft on an animated show. In July 2017, Shankar announced on Facebook he was working with Ubisoft on an Assassin's Creed animated series. It's unknown if this is still in the works.
Rayman and Hungry Shark Squad
The other two shows in the works are a comedy-adventure based on Rayman, and Hungry Shark Squad. For those unfamiliar with Hungry Shark, it’s a mobile game published by Ubisoft.
