'The General,' 'Exodus' writers pick up Assassin's Creed film script

The currently in-development film based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed has signed on a new pair of writers to re-draft the script, Bill Collage and Adam Cooper, reports Deadline. The film, slated to premiere in August 2015, will star Michael Fassbender, an actor whose recent credits include Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave and upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Ubisoft will be supporting last-gen consoles over the next few years

Ubisoft will continue to develop for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles for several more years, company vice-president of creative Lionel Raynaud told Edge. "We will have games for PS3 and 360 for this year and probably the years after," said Raynaud prior to confirmation of Assassin's Creed Unity on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. "We want to be able to provide games to people who are playing on these consoles. Black Flag was the first Assassin's Creed game of this new generation but it was designed with that in mind, but I wouldn't say it was a cross-generation game, as it has features that could only be for this generation." Developing across both last and current gen systems isn't restrictive for developers, Raynaud continued, describing cross-generational development as...

Ubisoft teams with Sony Pictures for Rabbids movie

Ubisoft today announced a deal with Sony Pictures to develop a movie based on its Rabbids animated game characters. The plan follows a recent Nickelodeon and France Televisions TV partnership, Rabbids Invasion. Ubisoft's Rabbids began life as vicious but stupid, zombie-like rabbits in the company's Rayman games, but soon graduated to their own series, often party games aimed at children. "There is an infectious quality to the Rabbids," said Columbia Pictures' Hannah Minghella. "Their simple joy and absurd, anarchic behavior inadvertently causes you to look at the world afresh. There's no end to the comedy and chaos they will cause when they invade our theaters." Ubisoft created a specific movie division in January 2011 and has announced plans for movies based on Ghost Recon, ...
