Assassin's Creed Summary
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is Assassin's Creed creator's new game, explores mankind's pivotal moments
Patrice Desilets has revealed what his next project is, and it has an ancestral link to his other creation: Assassin's Creed. It seems he couldn't give up the 'exploring the past' angle and has decided to go deeper into history.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third-person "action-adventure survival episodic game" that will look to mankind's greatest historical moments through the passage of time.
We've got an official release date for the Assassin's Creed movie (yes, that's still a thing that's happening). According to the, the adaptation directed by Aussie filmmaker Justin Kurzel and starring Michael Fassbender will hit cinemas on December 21 2016.
Assassin's Creed has been in development hell for a few years, as Ubisoft went back and forth with first Sony, then current distributors 20th Century Fox on various aspects of production.
Soon the non-compete clause as part of Patrice Désilets's Ubisoft contract will expire, meaning the creator of Assassin's Creed will be free to talk about any new projects.
Nosy sleuth Superannuation asked Désilets whether he'd have something to announce by then, to which he replied "probably, yes..." It would put such news close to E3.
Prometheus star Michael Fassbender states that the Assassin's Creed film, which is he tabbed to play the lead Altair, is "definitely happening."
It's been a few years since the original Assassin's Creed released, and there's been four major new titles since then. Obviously it's time for a bundle. Ubisoft usher in the Assassin's Creed Heritage Collection.
They bill it as a "high value compilation" starting with the original haystack-diver Altair in Assassin's Creed all the way through to frontier-exploring Connor in Assassins' Creed III.
