Following the success of the animated Castlevania Netflix series, gamers will soon be able to watch a TV show based on another popular video game property. Adi Shankar, the executive producer behind the aforementioned animated series, will be producing another animated TV series based on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Called Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe, not much is currently known about the series. However, one detail that has come out regards its purpose as serving as a show that's part of a greater multiverse. Indeed, Ubisoft plans on making multiple animated series that will be part of a shared Ubisoft universe. Other planned shows included one based on the Rayman franchise as well as Hungry Shark, a mobile game by the gaming giant.

Watch Dogs is also getting an animated show in the form of a tween-friendly experience about a young hacker who attempts to solve mysteries at her high school. Given the upcoming release of Watch Dogs Legion, it does not come as too much of a surprise that the franchise will be getting a television adaptation as well. Yet, Ubisoft added the caveat that "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."

The idea of Ubisoft migrating its properties into the television realm is a very interesting choice altogether. While it's tough to pinpoint an exact reason, the success of the animated Castlevania series may have been a huge factor in deciding to run with a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon TV adaptation. Furthermore, the inspiration for an adaptation for Blood Dragon is also at question, given the releases of multiple new Far Cry games since.

Tentative producer Shankar is involved with multiple projects at the moment, however. In addition to the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon project, Shakar may also be getting behind an upcoming Assassin's Creed television adaptation, as well as a Legend of Zelda TV adaptation. Regardless of the reason for the shows' existence, many will be looking on as Ubisoft seeks to flesh out their TV adaptations of some of their most beloved properties.
