Variety reports, Fox didn't set a new date for the film, with reshuffles instead seeing Marvel's long-speculated Deadpool movie greenlit for February 12, 2016.
Word of a film based on Ubisoft's historical series first slipped out of the shadows in 2012, with Promethius and X-Men star Michael Fassbender revealed as the leading man. Two years on and details remain sparse. There were couple of changes on the screenwriting staff, with Adam Cooper and Bill Collage understood to be currently rewriting the script. The pair worked on Accepted and Tower Heist, and are currently penning words for Ridley Scott's upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings among others.
Hollywood Reporter notes that, according to "Fox insiders," Assassin's Creed is expected to makes its silver screen debut in 2016.
