We heard reports last week that Sony Pictures was close to nailing down a deal to adapt Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise for film. While still in the early stages, the franchise was apparently the subject of a bidding war between Sony and Universal. Sony emerged victorious and now work begins on protecting its investment.
A total of 16 web domains were registered by the studio last Thursday -- the AC movie deal news broke on Friday -- as Fusible reported over the weekend. The domain names are all very generic and unrevealing, but they make two things clear: Assassin's Creed is a thing and that thing is going to be a movie (or film). Find the full domain list after the jump.
See what I mean? Not much here.
