Assassin’s Creed Gets New Comic Series As Webtoon and Ubisoft Team Up

Webtoon’s VP of content, David Lee says, ‘We can’t wait for readers to see where Edward Kenway’s story goes next’

Digital comics platform Webtoon has partnered with Ubisoft for its first-ever global content collaboration with the original webcomic, Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple. The series is published by Redice Studio and will introduce Webtoon’s global fanbase to a new chapter in the acclaimed Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Webtoon’s comic will be exclusively available on Webtoon and readers can access the first six episodes from 5 pm PT April 24th, with new episodes rolling out weekly. Fans will be able to enjoy up to three seasons and a total of 150 episodes.

“We’ve been working hard with the talented folks at REDICE to craft this original Assassin’s Creed Black Flag sequel and hope that existing fans and new readers around the world will enjoy it”, said Julien Fabre, Ubisoft’s director of global TV & transmedia business development.

Expanding its digital comics IP

The partnership also acts as the latest expansion of Webtoon’s IP and creator ecosystem, bringing digital comics to new fans and formats.

Webtoon’s VP of content, David Lee commented, “As longtime fans of the franchise, we can’t wait for readers to see where Edward Kenway’s story goes next. This incredible series will captivate existing fans of the Assassin’s Creed video games while introducing this beloved IP to a new audience on Webtoon.”

Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple will combine the elements of historical adventure and present-day action that have made Assassin’s Creed a global sensation, with fresh storylines that will appeal to readers who are new to the franchise.

The series will also retain the franchise’s emphasis on historical accuracy, and utilise the Animus memory-travel machine featured prominently in the video game series. Fans will also be introduced to Noa, a Korean-American descendant of Edward Kenway, who investigates the Assassin’s past in the present day while searching for information about his family.
