Assassin's Creed Movie Delayed Until Late Next Year

assassins_creed_unity_e3_2014_5I really have a love/hate relationship with Assassin's Creed. It's a ton of fun, the time periods are generally interesting and they've done several really intriguing things with the story in the past. On the other hand, it represents everything wrong with AAA gaming right now. Ubisoft strive to make a new sequel every single year on an immoveable release date, even to the game's detriment. It also features support apps and microtransactions on a full release game. It can be tough to love the series at times, but I find myself playing it each year regardless.

I am certainly interested to see how the movie goes too. The film is being produced by and will star Michael Fassbender with Justin Kurzel in the director's chair. It will be a little longer until we get a chance to see it though. The Hollywood Reporter are saying that the film has been pushed back to 21 December, 2016. That may well put it up against the proposed Star Wars spin-off and an Avatar sequel though, so… good luck to them.

There was once some guy writing for Film Divider who got an extensive scoop on the movie's content at one point, but he's a total nobody.
