Ubisoft is betting big on its pirate-themed MMO, Skull & Bones. The company has announced its partnership with Atlas Entertainment to bring out a series ahead of the release of the game itself. "Ubisoft is known for creating innovative video games that combine immense worlds with rich narratives," says Danielle Kreinik, the executive co-producer along with Jason Altman.
The series will be set in the "golden age of piracy in the 1700s" in the Indian Ocean and is said to be a female-driven drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ubisoft is going into the television and film sector with gusto as evidenced by several live-action trailers, a short Amazon series based on The Division as well as a film adaptation of The Division with Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain.
