Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed Movie Sequel Planned; Next AC Game in January 2017?

It has been a while since Tom Hardy donned the sam Fisher suit in the Splinter Cell movie and it looks like a sequel would sound like a good idea. That is not just the case with Splinter Cell though, it looks like Ubisoft might also be planning an Assassin’s Creed movie sequel alongside! More than that, we might get the next Assassin’s Creed game in january 2017!

Based on some new reports, New Regency is planning to take the two game franchises further in terms of their presence in Hollywood. The production company wants sequels.

While this does sound more probable for Splinter Cell, since the original movie came out more than a couple of years ago, the Michael Fassbender starrer Assassin’s Creed Movie is not even out yet.

However, since anything starring the Fass is bound to get the hype, and the fact that this is a hugely popular and recurring videogame franchise we are talking about, New Regency might have already figured that Assassin’s Creed Movie sequel is a safe investment.

Other than this, the report suggests that the next Assassin’s Creed game is also going to be released in January 2017. Nothing of that sort has been mentioned by Ubisoft so far although they have announced the Assassin’s Creed VR “Experience” which is not a game.

Also, it has been confirmed by Ubisoft that there is not going to be any Assassin’s Creed this year becuase they are rethinking whether the franchise should continue to follow a yearly release cycle or not.

Any how, we are certainly going to be excited for all three i.e. the Splinter Cell movie sequel, the Assassin’s Creed movie sequel as well as the next Assassin’s Creed game now that we are going to get a break this year.

Thanks, Variety.
