Webtoon and Ubisoft have announced a collaboration to continue the Assassin’s Creed series in webcomic form. Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple will be published by Redice Studio and available exclusively through Webtoon, the world’s largest digital comics platform.
The webcomic will be a continuation of the story of Edward Kenway, who was a fan-favorite character from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. “Edward Kenway is on a dangerous quest to find Pieces of Eden on the coasts of the Southeast Asian seas — and will have to face off with new and mysterious adversaries.” In normal Assassin’s Creed fashion, there will also be a present-day counterpart to the story. A Korean descendent of Kenway, Noa, will be investigating the Assassins for information about his family.
“Assassin’s Creed is a one-of-a-kind IP, and our goal was to create a work that would be appealing not only to fans of the original game but also to readers who are encountering the Assassin’s Creed IP for the first time through Webtoon. We are thrilled to work with Ubisoft and Webtoon to tell a new side of the Edward James Kenway story set in Southeast Asia. We can’t wait for fans to dive into this rich new storyline and entry into the Assassin’s Creed universe,” said Redice Studio.
Three seasons and a total of 150 episodes are planned for this exciting series. The first six episodes will be released April 24 at 5 p.m. PT and will be available for readers in the US, Korea, Japan, Indonesia, and France. New episodes will be rolling out weekly.
