Titan Comics announced today that they’ve acquired the license to publish a new series of comics based on the popular video game series Assassin’s Creed. No release date has been given for the upcoming five-part story arc, which will be illustrated by Neil Edwards of Titan’s much anticipated Four Doctor’s crossover. From Titan:
Assassin’s Creed is one of the most popular franchises in the video game industry, with more than 93 million units sold since its inception in 2007. Over time, Assassin’s Creed has broadened its reach into numerous media beyond games, enriching the Assassin’s Creed lore for the joy of many fans.
Titan comics will soon expand the realm of Assassin’s Creed visual storytelling with the creation of a brand new comic series.
“We’re so excited to be working with Ubisoft on this fantastic new adventure, said Lizzie Kaye, editor, Titan Comics. “Assassin’s Creed is one of the most notoriously beautiful games on the market, and the team at Ubisoft have created a world that is perfect for us to explore, expand and inhabit with a raft of new characters in new settings. We’re really hoping to surprise readers with the direction for this new series.”
The first 5-part arc will be illustrated by the artist of Doctor Who: Four Doctors – Neil Edwards!
