Assassin's Creed Movie: Delay Pushes Film Starring Michael Fassbender Back Three Months

An Assassin's Creed movie is coming to theaters on Aug. 7 2015, which will be the first film of one of the most popular video game franchises.

The Hollywood Reporter made the claim after previous reports had the movie linked for May 22 2015.

Current Hollywood leading man, Michael Fassbender, is linked to play the main role of Desmond Miles who throughout the games encompasses ancestor characters, Altair, Ezio, and Connor. Fassbender is most known for his roles as Magneto in X-Men and as the robot David, in Prometheus.

The script is being written by Scott Frank, who has previously penned The Wolverine, Minority Report, and Marley & Me among other films and shows.

The most recent game in the franchise is Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, released on October 29 for the PS#, Xbox 360 and Wii U. It will arrive on the PS4 on November 15, the Xbox One on Nov. 22, and on the PC Nov. 19.

This game is the next in a sequence of games with Assassin's Creed III closing out the chapter of Desmond Miles being alive. Black Flag introduces Assassin Edward Kenway, who becomes immersed in a pirate world in the Caribbean when England and Spain still had ruling.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag beat out Battlefield 4 in opening week sales, but both sold less opening copies than their predecessors in the U.K.

Despite the lower numbers this time around, both games managed to capture the top two spots in game sales.

Last week's charts are as follows, according to Metro.

1 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (360)
2 Battlefield 4 (360)
