Assassin's Creed movie will sneak up in December 2016

Release Date: 07/01/2015

Assasin's CReed: Unity on Xbox One at

20th Century Fox has announced a firm release date for its proposed Assassin's Creed movie. The adaptation of Ubisoft's mammoth franchise will land just before Christmas on 21 December 2016.

The date puts the movie one week after the first Star Wars spin-off feature which, in a curious twist of fate, is written by former UK games journalist Gary Whitta. Funny how things work out.

Star Michael Fassbender is still on board for Assassin's Creed. He'll play the lead character and also produce the movie, and it will be directed by Justin Kurzel. You may not have heard of him, but his 2011 crime thriller Snowtown won a slew of awards in his native Australia.

It's unclear if the film will just adapt the first Assassin's Creed from 2007, one of the more recent sequels, or if it will use the Animus history-hopping concept to pluck scenarios from different games.

The most recent entry in the series, of course, was Assassin's Creed: Unity. That game gets its first DLC next week, which will be free to all players. Dead Kings is set after the events of the main game, and finds Arno exploring the royal tombs beneath Saint Denis. You'll get a “guillotine gun” as well as new co-op missions, side quests, enigmas and murder mysteries to solve.

Assassin's Creed: Unity is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
