Ubisoft is working on transforming several of its biggest video game properties into television series. Watch Dogs (opens in new tab), Rayman, and Far Cry: Blood Dragon (opens in new tab) are all getting the animated treatment, as revealed by the French-Canadian publisher.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab), Ubisoft film and television managing director Helene Juguet outlined the company’s mantra for the upcoming slate of TV shows, stating: “Every show has a different target that it’s aiming for and a different format.”

Among the confirmed shows is a special episode of the currently-airing Rabbids Invasion title; a “cybermystery” for a tween audience, set in the Watch Dogs universe; a “family-friendly” Rayman series; and Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe, a spin-off from Far Cry’s own ‘80s action-inspired expansion, Blood Dragon.

Ubisoft is also parachuting in Adi Shankar, who helped produce Netflix’s own Castlevania adaptation to oversee the projects. “Adi is such a great fan of video games. We share the same culture and references," explains Juguet. "It's been great to give him the freedom to do something very fresh and bold with our characters.”

Outside of that, there are currently no details regarding release dates and casting. There are, however, a handful of posters to accentuate the mood of both the Watch Dogs series – which shows a young female lead in Ada Lovelace Middle School – and the Blood Dragon show. The latter features the tagline: “This is one hell of an apocalypse we’re having” and features what appears to be a main character who resembles eye-patched Rex, the lead from Blood Dragon.

I'm the Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
