Assassin's Creed Summary
Ubisoft has released some stills from the upcoming Assassin's Creed film, showing off Michael Fassbender in action in his dual role of 15th century Spanish assassin Aguilar and his modern day descendant Callum Lynch.
As with Desmond Miles from the video games, Lynch is descended from a long line of Assassins, and, as with the games, is probably a prisoner of Abstergo, the front company for the Templars. The organization is led by Alan Rikkin, played by Jeremy Irons.
There has always been speculation about the possibility of the Assassin's Creed franchise delving into more Oriental affairs. A recently uploaded video may have hints to the confirmation of a 2016 title that will do just that.
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.
