Ubisoft and Titan Books are releasing a brand new Assassin’s Creed book in September that will work in a similar way to the Where’s Waldo series.
A new Assassin’s Creed book is on the way, which will task fans with finding a variety of assassins hidden in crowded scenes, similar to the Where’s Waldo? series. The book will be just the latest expansion of what has become one of the biggest franchises in gaming. Since the launch of the first game in 2007, it has become Ubisoft’s premier series, with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla driving the publisher’s most profitable quarter over the last three months.
The book release will soon be joined by a brand new Assassin’s Creed television series that is being developed for Netflix. Following the cancellation of the film series thanks to the box office flop that was the 2016 movie featuring Michael Fassbender, the streaming service has picked up the series to create a fresh adaptation of the gaming property. The company has previously adapted a number of video game titles in the past, including Castlevania and The Witcher.

Assassin’s Creed fan account AccessTheAnimus has revealed a brand new Assassin’s Creed book that is due out later this year. Assassin’s Creed: Where’s The Assassin? is a hardcover book that will be published by Titan Books and is set to launch on September 7, 2021. It appears to be a Where’s Waldo? style book where readers will attempt to find the hidden assassin among various crowded scenes. According to the official description for the product on the Forbidden Planet website, it will feature original illustrations “spanning over 2000 years of history” and “13 iconic assassins through the ages and across the world.”
Earlier this week it emerged that the head writer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Black Flag has left Ubisoft. Darby McDevitt, who has been involved with the series for more than a decade, announced on Twitter that he was leaving in order to “set forth on a new adventure.” McDevitt was largely responsible for the stories of the more recent Assassin’s Creed games, setting the narrative direction of the entire series.
The fact that Ubisoft is attempting to expand the Assassin’s Creed franchise as much as possible makes sense. The success of the series means that it is a good choice to market other products based on the franchise to fans, who are often eager to delve deeper into the lore. This kind of book might not seem like a natural choice but it will likely still be popular with many Assassin’s Creed players.
