Ubisoft go to the Movies

Video game publishing giant Ubisoft are making the leap from consoles to the silver screen.

The publisher has launched Ubisoft Motion Pictures, with the view of adapting their franchises into films and television shows.

*Insert roaring lion here*

The company’s studio will be based in Paris and will be ran by Jean-Julien Baronnet, the former CEO of Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp. Producer Didier Lupfer will be the head of production and development, and former Disney France executive Jean de Rivieres will oversee marketing and international sales.

So what does this mean for it’s most popular franchises? We have already seen a Prince Of Persia film, which was met with mixed reviews but performed well financially. Personally I would love to see a big screen version of Assassin’s Creed, and Splinter Cell is ready and waiting to be made into a bourne-esque flick. Time will tell, but it looks like we will be seeing more video game adaptations hit our cinema screens in the very near future.

George Clooney as Sam Fisher? FTW or epic fail?

Apparently the title of Ubisoft’s fourth entry in their highly popular Assassin’s Creed franchise has been revealed.

Forum members of NeoGAF managed to extract information from a Ubisoft Facebook page post, revealing Assassin’s Creed Revelations, likely the fourth major title for consoles following last year’s Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.

Nothing else is known about the title, and the report is till unconfirmed by Ubisoft themselves, but an announcement will likely be made at their E3 2011 news conference on June 6th.

Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot previously went on record in February stating that the next AC game would be revealed this May, and that it would be a full retail title. Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy was previously announced for 3DS and is slated for release this year.
An Ubisoft spokesperson said the publisher has nothing to confirm at this time.

Is this the next chapter in the Assassin's Creed lineage?
