Despite the failure of "Assassin's Creed" to dominate the box office, its developer Ubisoft is still gearing up to produce the sequel rather than make a movie out of ''Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" or "The Division." Given the need to continue on the sequel, questions are already piling up for Ubisoft and its counterpart.
A former post from AV Club shared that with "Assassin's Creed" set to gracefully swan dive into movie theaters this winter, one might assume Ubisoft, creator of the game franchise, is excited to be associated with what might possibly be the first video-game-to-film adaptation that doesn't stink or failing that, the company would embrace box-office profits as moviegoers line up to watch Michael Fassbender in a hoodie stabbing insufferable fat cats from across history.
However, Ubisoft is indignant and is confident that the next part of the "Assassin's Creed" would be different. According to the Ubisoft's European head Alain Corre, "We are not going to earn a lot of money from [Assassin's Creed]; it is a lot more [of] a marketing thing. What we would like is to put this franchise in front of a lot more people who, maybe, will then pick up future Assassin's Creed games."
On a different note, Attack of the fanboy reported that a recent survey shared by Ubisoft seems to indicate that it might not be all over for the future of Assassin's Creed in Hollywood and the email includes questions like what would people like to see in a future sequel, and if that film should count with all, some or none of the cast of the original movie.
2016's "Assassin's Creed" movie was a disappointment for everyone involved: Fans were let down by yet another videogame adaptation that didn't do justice to the original experience, and producers Ubisoft and Regency Films barely got their $125 million investment back, having grossed $212 million around the world, according to the same report.
For the gaming enthusiasts and followers of "Assassin's Creed," every detail should be taken with a grain of salt in mind.
