The Assassin's Creed universe will be significantly expanded - the developers announced a number of projects that will tell us even more stories about the world of Assassin's Creed. Interestingly, none of the projects will be a game - instead, we will have podcasts, graphic novels and books.
The projects will be divided into separate categories: stories about the direct characters of Assassin's Creed; adapted stories from games, as well as stories about completely new characters. Among the formats around which projects will be created, you can find, for example, manhwa - Chinese comics, as well as podcasts where actors will voice the characters from the story.
Among the partners who will implement the developer's ambitious plans are many Asian companies such as Asmodee Entertainment. "Networking with talented partners from Asia is a priority for us," said Julien Fabre, one of Ubisoft's representatives.
Specific examples of future projects were also announced. Among them - Assassin's Creed Fragments - a series that includes stories about assassins in different eras and countries: modern Japan, medieval Scotland and France of the 17th century. In addition, we can definitely expect a separate manga on Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China.
As a reminder, this is not the first time Ubisoft has tried to expand its franchise in different directions. A few years ago, a full-length Assassin's Creed movie was released, as well as a whole series of comics in 2017.
More information about the projects can be found on the official Ubisoft website. As a reminder, Assassin's Creed Valhalla became the last game in the franchise, and the release of the first add-on pack was postponed until early May 2021.
