For now, it’s not clear what the concept of the new “Assassin’s Creed” comic will be, nor have there been any official statements regarding how strongly the comics will tie in to the video games. It has since gone on to reach into numerous homes via various gaming platforms and generate it on history and weave its own impressive lore. Ubisoft even made and published a pair of “Assassin’s Creed” graphic novels under the company’s UbiWorkshop label called “Assassin’s Creed: The Chain” in 2012 and “Assassin’s Creed: Brahman” in 2014. Now Titan Comics and Ubisoft will join forces to branch out further.
“We’re so excited to be working with Ubisoft on this fantastic new adventure”, Titan Comics editor Lizzie Kaye said. We’re really hoping to surprise readers with the direction for this new series.
