Assassin’s Creed Film Adaptation Starring Michael Fassbender Sees Delay from Summer 2015 to Late 2016

on January 6, 2015 10:15 AM

While the Assassin’s Creed video game series has seen no trouble of seeing annual releases on consoles each year, with last year bringing both Unity and Rogue to current and last-gen console owners: the highly-anticipated big-screen adaptation, however, has had several years of traction working against its release, with another delay taking it from a planned 2015 launch into next year instead.

Reports detail that in an announcement of 21st Century Fox’s upcoming release lineup of new films for the next year, the film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, originally scheduled for release on August 7th, 2015, has instead seen a delay to December 21st, 2016, putting the film over a year away from its original release. The film, starring Michael Fassbender (Inglourious BasterdsX-Men: Days of Future Past), has had numerous delays prior, with an original release targeted in May 2015.

Assassin’s Creed is scheduled to hit theaters now in December 21st, 2016.
