Mega Man, Magic: The Gathering & Sims Movies All Cancelled by Disney?

  • MovieWeb
Update: A representative for Walt Disney Studios has personally reached out to confirm that this story is not true. It is 100% fake news that Disney has canceled over 300 movies reportedly in development. The story originated from a fake list of film titles that someone posted on an Imgur account. Neither Disney nor Fox would have 'hundreds' of movies in development all at one time, and it is noted that if true, no studio would just storm in and cancel everything in one fail swoop. As for the fates of Mega Man, Magic: The Gathering and The Sims Movie, we haven't had an update on those in a while, and all three could very well actually happen in the future.

Original story: Several planned video game based movies in the works will no longer see the light of day, as Disney has unplugged a handful of them in one fell swoop.

Assassin's Creed Creator Wants to Make Haiti Earthquake Game

Rob Leane Aug 1, 2019

Based on the experiences of his father, Patrice Désilets would like to tell the story of the disastrous 2010 Haiti earthquake...

Patrice Désilets, who created Assassin's Creed with Jade Raymond and Corey May at Ubisoft, has been talking about his upcoming projects in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz. Perhaps most surprisingly, he wants to tell the story of the catastrophic 2010 Haiti earthquake in video game form.

Désilets founded his own company, Panache Digital Games, back in 2014. Through Panache, Désilets is due to launch a third-person survival title called Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey later this year. This interview reveals that his future plans don't stop there.

"Panache has another IP called 1666 Amsterdam, which we will eventually make," Désilets said. Ancestors and 1666 Amsterdam only represent the tip of Panache's creative iceberg, though. "I have my own personal portfolio of ideas and they're not all set in the past."

Désilets continued: "Eventually,

Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Ubisoft Breaks Down the Fate of Atlantis

Bernard Boo Jul 25, 2019

We talk to Assassin's Creed Odyssey director Hugo Giard about final chapter of The Fate of Atlantis.

This week marked the end of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s current Dlc storyline, The Fate of Atlantis. Following "Fields of Elysium" and "Torment of Hades," "Judgment of Atlantis" is the final of the three-episode saga and wraps up the storylines built in the previous chapters, which revolve around the protagonist (either Cassandra or Alexios) as they explore Elysium and the Underworld (essentially Heaven and Hell) and work out the dilemmas of those in the afterlife. In "Judgment of Atlantis," our hero ventures into the legendary aquatic city, aiding denizens and making impossible decisions that could change the city forever.

Odyssey’s major post-launch content will likely end with "Judgment of Atlantis," though Ubisoft did announce the game’s educational Discovery Tour Mode and the community-driven Story Creator Mode at

Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell Facebook Vr Games Rumored

Matthew Byrd Jul 10, 2019

Facebook may be looking to expand their Vr interests with adaptations of Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed.

A new report suggests that Facebook may be working on Vr versions of Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed that they intend to release for Oculus Vr devices. 

The initial report seems to have come from The Information (the report is locked behind a paywall) which was tweeted out by Geoff Keighley. Since then, additional details have started to emerge. The basic story, though is that Facebook seems interested in expanding their Vr war chest by acquiring additional studios as well as the rights to feature Vr versions of some popular video game franchises. 

That part of the story certainly seems to make sense as Facebook has been hiring additional executives for their Vr department as well as pushing new versions of the Rift that they hope will address some of

Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Torment of Hades Review

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's latest Dlc chapter, Torment of Hades, is a good reason to return to the game.

Release Date: June 4, 2019

Platform: PS4 (reviewed), Xbo, PC

Developer: Ubisoft

Publisher: Ubisoft

Genre: Action-adventure

In "Torment of Hades," the second of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s three-episode Fate of Atlantis Dlc, you’ll explore the desolate deserts and craggy cliffs of the Underworld as you carry out tasks for the manipulative Hades himself, encounter old friends and foes from the main campaign, and come face-to-face with some of the most formidable figures in Greek mythology. If you enjoyed Odyssey (I consider it one of the best mainline games in the series), you’ll certainly be satisfied with this Dlc episode—it offers the same tight combat, story-driven missions and free-form exploration but in a new sandbox that’ll take about ten hours to complete. There isn’t a lot to dislike here.

Rome: 5 Things that Are Accurate and 5 Things That Are Totally Fabricated

Who doesn't love an old-fashioned peplum flick? An epic genre that dates from the Golden Age of Hollywood, these movies never really went out of style. Their popularity, massive budgets, and legendary characters rival our modern superhero films. The saga of ancient Rome, with its opulent lifestyle, breathtaking architecture and dramatic politics, is a popular subject. The HBO drama Rome, which spanned two seasons between 2005 and 2007, was one of the more recent interpretations of this crucial moment in history. It was more realistic and visceral than others that had come before it, with impressive respect for the real history of the period. However, the show still has a few glaring inaccuracies. Some of these can be explained for the sake of screen adaptation while others just seem like silly mistakes.

Assassin's Creed 2020: 5 Facts You Need to Know

Rob Leane Aug 19, 2019

Let's have a look at everything we know about the next Assassin's Creed game, which is believed to be based around the Viking era.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

What will the next Assassin's Creed game be? At the time of writing, we don't know, which is an odd position to be in for fans of this particular franchise. The game is set to release in 2020, which means that Ubisoft is still trying to play its cards close to the chest.

That doesn't mean the rumor mill isn't hard at work trying to decipher the setting of the next installment. And, as with many of recent Assassin's Creed games, a few unfortunate leaks have made the new game the worst kept secret in the games biz.

If you're looking for all the info that is currently available about the next Assassin's Creed game, you've come to the right place.

Ubisoft Making Three Unannounced Games to Launch Within a Year

Rob Leane May 16, 2019

On top of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, Ubisoft has three unannounced titles in the pipeline...

Here's an interesting one: Ubisoft has revealed that there are three unannounced games in its production pipeline currently, on top of the recently-revealed Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. This news stems from an earnings presentation from the French company that has found its way online.

In the presentation, which you can view at this link if you so desire, Ubisoft's final slide promises that it has "3 unannounced titles" coming to market in "fiscal Q4." If Ubisoft's understanding of a financial year works the same as ours, this suggests that we'll see this trio of games released by April 2020.

The presentation doesn't make it clear what these games will be, but there is a slide that describes Ubisoft's intention to "enter into new gaming genres, segments, and business models" while also creating "new IPs and new experiences.

Assassin's Creed: Ubisoft Donates to Notre-Dame Cathedral Restoration

Matthew Byrd Apr 18, 2019

The infamous Assassin's Creed Unity has just become historically notable for a different reason.

Ubisoft has announced that it is not only donating over $500,000 to help restore the Notre-Dame Cathedral but that it's making Assassin's Creed Unity free to all PC gamers.

"In light of Monday's events, we will be donating €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of the Cathedral.

Ubisoft Says Splinter Cell and Tom Clancy Games Changed Company Forever

Matthew Byrd Apr 8, 2019

Ubisoft's CEO sees Splinter Cell and the Tom Clancy Games as a turning point.

Ubisoft CEO and co-founder Yves Guillemot recently joined IGN for an interview in which he states that he believes the Tom Clancy property, particularly Splinter Cell, forever changed the fate of Ubisoft.

“The first one that changed the lot of the company was Splinter Cell,” says Guillemot. "We went for the Xbox, and it was a complex bet, and a dangerous bet because they didn't have many machines [out there]. Launching on that machine and not PlayStation at the time was a bit risky, but we couldn't go straight on PlayStation. We wanted to use the capacity of the [Xbox]. We did very well on Xbox. We hit probably 50 percent of the install base.”

Guillemot touches on a few things of note with that statement. Elsewhere in the interview, he praises modern Ubisoft for the

Assassin's Creed: Next Game Will Take Place in Viking Era

Matthew Byrd Apr 5, 2019

An Easter egg in The Division 2 has led to new reports about Vikings and Assassin's Creed.

The next Assassin's Creed will most likely take place in the era of Vikings if a new report from Kotaku and a tease in The Division 2 are to be believed.

Head to the Potomac Event Center in The Division 2 and you'll find a series of posters that feature Vikings and references to Valhalla. At first glance, it appears to just be a neat piece of design. However, people who are way too into the Assassin's Creed series (you know who you are) have noticed that the character in the poster appears to be holding the Apple of Eden; an important part of the Assassin's Creed mythology. 

Taken on its own, this could just be a cute reference to AC series, but Kotaku is reporting that multiple independent sources have informed them

Hyper Light Drifter: Netflix Castlevania Creator Developing Animated Series

Matthew Byrd Apr 1, 2019

The stunning beautiful Hyper Light Drifter is getting an animated adaptation.

Adi Shankar (the showrunner of Netflix's Castlevania and the upcoming Devil May Cry and Assassin's Creed adaptations) is also actively developing a series based on the hit indie title, Hyper Light Drifter.

“The difference between a series and a game is vast in a lot of ways,” says Hyper Light Drifter creator Alx Preston in an interview with Polygon. "Hyper Light as a game was pretty atmospheric and kind of overbearing at times. For a series, the question is: how do you sustain and keep your attention on a non-interactive run? Does it get really, really dark and serious? Does it have some levity?”

Preston also notes that he and Shankar are "leaning a lot more towards something that’s representative of the game on the style side,” which suggests that this will be an

Google Stadia: Hands-on with the Cloud PC Gaming Platform

Bernard Boo Jun 6, 2019

Is Google Stadia the future of PC gaming? We went hands-on with the new platform and have some thoughts...

The promise of Google’s Stadia cloud gaming platform to bring Aaa gaming to any device that can run Chrome could be a game-changer, but much of its success hinges on how well the games perform in practice. At Gdc, I had the chance to get my hands on Stadia, playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey straight from the cloud. My experience left me generally optimistic about the new service, though there are still plenty of questions left unanswered that could make or break the platform’s prospects.

Visually, AC Odyssey looked quite nice, running at 1080p and 30 fps, though a Google employee assured me that the signal from the Google data center was streaming at 60 fps. The game was running on a Google Pixelbook laptop at each of

Google: Jade Raymond to Head Stadia Games and Entertainment Studio

Matthew Byrd Mar 19, 2019

Jade Raymond has likely joined Google to help them expand their video game division.

Google has confirmed that former Ubisoft and EA executive Jade Raymond will serve as head of Google's new game development studio, Stadia Games and Entertainment. In that capacity, it is believed she will lead a team of developers working on new titles for that studio on top of working with third-party developers who are partnering with the Stadia platform. 

Raymond had previously noted that she had joined Google as a vice president, but there was some doubt regarding what her exact role was going to be. Now, we know that she will help Google continue the work that they started within they introduced with the ability to stream Assassin's Creed: Odyssey from a browser. It's hardly a surprise to learn that they plan on breaking into the emerging world of cloud-based gaming.

Watch Dogs 3 Rumor Hints at London Setting and 2019 Release Date

Rob Leane Feb 26, 2019

Reports suggest that Watch Dogs could be moving to the UK with its third installment, which could be arriving in 2019

A new report suggests that Watch Dogs 3 could be moving the franchise to London, leaving us hoping for some UK-centric tech missions and some fun lines of dialogue along these sorts of lines: "Cor blimey, guv'nor, that bloke's hacking Big Ben!" Ahem.

We've been waiting for a while to hear what Ubisoft is planning to do with this franchise. The first Watch Dogs, which was set in Chicago, launched in 2014, and its sequel, which relocated to San Francisco, followed fairly promptly in 2016. Early last year, it looked like Ubisoft might reveal the third game in the series at E3 2018, but those rumors ended up being just that.

However, new rumors have been spotted online which suggest that Watch Dogs 3 "will be set in London" and it will

Ubisoft Reveals Female-Driven Skull & Bones TV Drama in the Works

  • Cinelinx
Despite the fact that Skull & Bones hasn't even released, yet, Ubisoft is pushing ahead with a TV series based around their impending Pirate game.  More within...

When a publisher/developer is extremely confident in their product, they'll tend to pour in as much money as possible to raise awareness and hype.  This usually entails a massive marketing blast that includes a ton of PR, a couple of preview videos, or even a celebrity of some sort playing the game.  However, for Ubisoft, it often means you're getting a live-action representation of said game.  Exhibit A would be last year's Far Cry 5 short film, on Amazon Prime Video, that focused on the events leading up to Far Cry 5. In other cases, if you're a popular IP like Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series, you'll get a subpar movie starring Michael Fassbender.  

In a fascinating twist, Ubisoft has announced intent to develop a TV
