Assassin’s Creed is set to be released next year, and not this December as originally thought.
But fear not, because 20th Century Fox, according to Games Radar.com, have said that the Michael Fassbender-led film will arrive in cinemas on January 1, 2017, just weeks after the rest of the world.
Directed by Justin Kurzel and also starring Marion Cotillard, Ariane Labed, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson, Assassin’s Creed opens in US theatres on December 21, 2016.
A synopsis of the film reads: “Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.
“Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.”
