Ubisoft Names First Three 3D Movies

Ubisoft Names First Three 3D Movies

Have you seen this article in gamesindustry.biz?

Ubisoft Motion Pictures is to create 3D movies based on the parent company's Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon franchises, according to latest reports.

"Our strategy is not to diversify but to bolster the appeal of our franchises - that's why we want to make sure our films will reflect the brands accurately and consolidate our fan base while expanding beyond the games' primary target audience," said head of marketing and international sales Jean de Rivieres. 

It seems like a bold move, a move that cost Squaresoft a huge amount when it entered the market and ultimatley failed. You only have to look at the figures for the Prince of Persia film. The Production Budget for Prince of Persia was $200,000,000, and it grossed worldwide a total of $335,059,676. Lets hope Ubisoft get it right

It will be interesting to see the results of the Uncharted 2 movie now that it has been green lit.

What games from the Ubisoft stable would you like to see made into film?
