This summer we told you that Michael Fassbender was set to star and co-produce in the Assassian's Creed movie adaptation and today we have a bit more insight in what we can expect from the film in the next year or so. Ubisoft's chief sales and marketing officer, Geoffroy Sardin, sat down with GamesIndustry.biz to talk about the future of the brand, and included a statement that leads us to believe we might see some Assassins Creed action next year, which is a lot sooner than we thought!
In that interview, Sardin said quote "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"
Now, we doubt that he means that we will see a movie in the next year, but we can speculate that he might mean the start of production. Looking at the timeline, perhaps filming would begin in the fall, seeing as Fassbender is going to have his hands full in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which starts filming in April of 2013.
Assassins Creed 3 was released October 30th and brought in around 3.5 million during it's first week, which essentially doubled Assassin's Creed:Revelations sales, so we can assume that more and more of you are becoming fans of the game, and perhaps will help us weigh in on the movie!
I just finished Assassin's Creed 3 recently and I have so many feelings! But for now can we agree that Haytham is simply flawless? (and oh yeah, I guess you can talk about the movie too if you want)
