Ubisoft describes this idea as the “next-generation theme park!”
[dropcap size=small]U[/dropcap]bisoft is well known for the Assassin’s Creed franchise that they started in 2007 with the release of Assassin’s Creed. Now, Ubisoft is taking their idea to the next level by planning an Assassin’s Creed Theme Park.
According to Ubisoft, the theme park will have the company’s “rich portfolio of world-renowned brands and expertise in designing high interactive game experiences” to “revolutionize” the theme park experience. The theme park project is being led by Ubisoft Motion Pictures and RSG, a co-owner and co-developer of Movie Animation Park Studios.
“Together we are creating a place where every guest is a player, every ride is a playground, every visit is a game,” said Jean de Rivieres, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures. “In RSG, we’ve found a partner with a successful track record in working with international brands, a shared ambition to design the family destination of the future, and a wealth of expertise in theme park development.”
The theme park will be built in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia and it will cover 10,000 square meters. The park will feature “innovative rides, attractions, and shows.” The park will include specific attractions, such as Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance and Rabbids.
“RSG is committed to redefining family fun, and video games have taken an increasingly central role in entertainment for all ages,” said Ramelle Ramli, the company’s chairman.
“Partnering with Ubisoft means we’ll work with their creative teams to develop the first of what we believe will be a revolutionary new theme park experience. We are confident that this partnership agreement highly benefits both parties and consolidates our presence in the global family entertainment market.”
Along with developing the theme park, Ubisoft is currently working on four feature films, including the Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender. The first image of Fassbender in costume has been released, along with details of his character, Callum Lynch. Assassin’s Creed the movie, currently being produced by New Regency and 2oth Century Fox, is expected to be released in theaters on December 21, 2016.
Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will be released on October 23rd for the PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version will not be ready for release until November 19th. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will be set in London during the Victorian Era.
The Assassin’s Creed theme park is scheduled to open in 2020!
