There was a sequel project in development, but the film's poor performance at the box office meant that it never saw the light of day. Creator/{{Disney}}'s acquisition of Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox does not bode well for its chances.

Interestingly enough, the movie is ''not'' an AlternateContinuity adaption like most feature-length high-budget video game movies, but takes place in the same continuity as the game franchise. In fact, the movie's Animus parts take place in the same year as ''[[http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin%27s_Creed_II:_Discovery Assassin's Creed II: Discovery]]'', in 1491. Both take place in Granada and have the protagonist (Ezio Auditore and Aguilar) fight against the Spanish Inquisition. Ezio and Aguilar [[{{Crossover}} met each other]] in the 2018 MobilePhoneGame ''Assassin's Creed: Rebellion''.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Christopher Columbus is a friend of the Assassin Order and [[spoiler:takes delivery of the Apple of Eden from Aguilar at the end of the Animus sequences]]. Out here in the real world, he was responsible for the large-scale enslavement and mass murder of indigenous Americans in the Caribbean in his pursuit of riches. And in canon, [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag the Assassins would establish a major foothold among those very tribes]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** The burning of heretics at the stake by the Spanish Inquisition was always a public act, but it was ''not'' meant to be a show. Staging one with dancers as in the film would have scandalized the Inquisitors themselves, as they expected those acts to frighten the crowds into behaving as the Kingdom's laws ordered, not to be seen as entertainment. That those dancers even wear Satanist/pagan-like goat masks is downright nonsensical.
** Royal fashion at the setting could certainly get very outrageous, but no Spanish queen would sport the strange kind of exotic warpaint the one from the film sports.
** It is also surprising that Aguilar and Maria are allowed to wear their Assassin clothes to the stake in the film. In real life, victims of an Inquisitorial execution would be stripped of all clothes and only given to wear a poncho named ''sambenito'' and a hat named ''coroza''.
** There are two different historical characters named Alonso de Ojeda in which Ojeda is based (he might be meant to be one of them, but which is hard to tell), but none of them died at the time and place he dies in the film.

Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: Callum is sentenced to death for murdering a man who is later revealed to have been a pimp. We don't learn much about him apart from that, but a deleted scene reveals that the victim was well known to law enforcement, and a man in Callum's interrogation room goes so far as to say that Cal did the world a favor.

Callum Lynch (Creator/MichaelFassbender) is a death row inmate who, after his execution, finds himself in the clutches of Abstergo Industries, the public front for the [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar Templar Order]]. Legally dead and with no one to miss him, Callum is forced to relive the memories of his ancestor, the [[TheHashshashin Assassin]] named Aguilar de Nerha ([[ActingForTwo Michael Fassbender]]), in late 1491, during the fall of Granada and ThePurge of the city by UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition.
