Sources close to the situation are saying that Sony is close to signing an agreement with Ubisoft for rights to the Assassin’s Creed franchise. This is part of the continuing efforts of Ubisoft Motion Pictures to expand out the company’s properties to TV and movies, including the recently announced Raving Rabbids series on Nickelodeon.
Sony declined comment and Ubisoft said they had nothing to announce right now. “As we’ve stated before, Ubisoft is actively looking for film opportunities for our top brands,” said the Ubisoft spokeswoman. “There is high interest from top Hollywood studios to collaborate on these brands.”
