Assassin’s Creed was meant to launch a franchise for producer and star Michael Fassbender, and of all the video game properties out there, it was a sensible choice. It’s spawned a lot of games, those games have expanded upon the mythology, and it’s a valuable IP. Of course, when you have an eye on future films, you’re incredibly conscious of how you end your movie. If Michael Fassbender wants a franchise, you don’t kill off Michael Fassbender at the end of your film.

Assassin’s Creed was never going to do that, but there was an alternate ending that they had in mind.
