The long-in-development Assassin’s Creed movie is finally hitting theaters this December, and the world is collectively clenching their buttocks in anticipation of whether it might actually be good. It takes place in the established Creed universe but stars Michael Fassbender as an original character, Callum Lynch. Regency Enterprises is so confident it’ll be a success that they’ve already started working on the sequel.

Yup, an Assassin’s Creed 2 movie (like a sequel to the first movie, not an adaptation of Assassin’s Creed II) is already under development, with many of the same producers attached: Jean-Julien Baronnet from Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Frank Marshall from Kennedy-Marshall, and Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan from DMC Films. It’ll sure be interesting to see how this turns out.

As our own Jackson Murphy pointed out yesterday with the announcement of Square Enix’s Thief movie, it’s not like video game movies have ever turned out poorly, so this show of confidence seems completely founded. Obviously.

You think it’ll be any good?

Our Verdict

Barry Herbers
I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
