Pre-Order Assassin's Creed for Xbox 360Ubisoft today confirmed that they are expanding into film production, as well as book publishing. The latter was definitely not expected, however back in February Ubisoft had announced that they were making a short film based on Assassin’s Creed, and said that “We may consider doing longer-form films or television sometime in the future.”

Although it was revealed today that they are indeed heading in that direction, no announcements or specifics were revealed regarding exactly what films or books they may be working on or publishing.

Prince of Persia The Two Thrones for PS2It is known though that a Prince of Persia movie is in the works, and that will be directed by Jerry Bruckheimer (All three Pirates of the Caribbean films) and is rumored to be directed by Michael Bay (Transformers, The Island).

Ubisoft looks at film making and book publishing as the next logical step for the company: “We will start making movies not because we want to, but because this is what we have to do. If we don’t, we will not be able to take advantage of the next generation.”
