Assassin’s Creed movie may be coming to theatres next year
In a recent interview, Ubisoft's chief sales and marketing officer Geoffroy Sardin revealed that the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie may be coming out next year.
In a recent interview with the website GamesIndustry.biz, Geoffroy Sardin, Ubisoft's chief sales and marketing officer, hinted at a tentative release date of next year for the film adaptation of Ubisoft's critically acclaimed video game franchise Assassin's Creed.
“Another thing that is very important for the lifecycle is the transmedia offer. All the figurines, the books, the publishing, and we have a movie in the next coming year. So it's not only about games, we are talking about a global brand, and this is the life cycle management we want to set up now.” –Geoffroy Sardin, interview with GamesIndustry.biz
The Assassin's Creed film will star Michael Fassbender in the lead role–presumably as Desmond Miles–and Hollywood has been buzzing with news that the movie is indeed in the works for months now. Ubisoft, the development studio behind the popular gaming franchise, has partnered with New Regency to bring the games to life on the big screen.
The Assassin's Creed games have been the subject for acclaim and anticipation, selling over 38 million units of the franchise's four games worldwide, and with the newest chapter in the series, Assassin's Creed III, Ubisoft's franchise gains even more momentum.
An official release date for the movie hasn't been confirmed yet, but it appears that fans might see their favorite assassin on the big screen next year.
