Ubisoft Are Teasing Two New Projects

Ubisoft have not one, but two secret projects they’re teasing. One is in development in Montreal and involves Canadian comic book artists Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl. This one is likely a comic book project of some sort, as hinted by Mr. Stewart on his blog, following an official reveal that he, regretfully, is unable to work any further on DC’s The Return of Bruce Wayne storyline. Stewart writes:


However, to take the sting away, I do have a couple of secret irons in the fire, including an upcoming new comic series based on an immensely popular property. It’s doubly exciting because I will be writing as well as drawing, partnered with my friend and studiomate Karl Kerschl. Work is already underway and we’re really excited and energized by it – hopefully you will be too when it’s announced at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.


Why do we feel this is related to Ubisoft? Because over on their Twitter feed, they write:


Until we can tell you more about the secret project @CameronMstewart and @karlkerschl are working on…Here’s a teaser about a completely different project on www.ubiworkshop.com. Oh, and before you ask, this has nothing to do with Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood


Note the wording. They say “project,” not “game,” which reinforces the fact that Stewart and Kerschl are working on something that doesn’t fall into the latter category. The Ubi Workshop link, however, might, and leads to the following picture:

    The imagery is very Assassin’s Creed. It seems a tad bit quick to be releasing a new AC game, especially with Brotherhood on the horizon.

    But I like the idea of Egypt. If it is at least as good as AC2 (preferably less buggy) then I’m down. I don’t know what it was about AC2, but I really loved it.

    Oh, an “A” and a “C” on that crest… I wonder what this is all about!

  • For the record, I’d be surprised if this turned out to be a game. I don’t think Ubisoft would kill off hype for Brotherhood before they’ve even had a chance to show it off by announcing another Assassin’s Creed game. It’s probably either a comic or some sort of film.

      I’m still gonna cross my fingers for a game. I love Assassin’s Creed, but not enough to buy a comic about it. And while the mini-film they made as a tie-in to AC2 was well done, video game related films are almost universally crap. Since Brotherhood is supposed to have such a multiplayer emphasis, maybe they will release a single player title next year. After all, a spin off for DS came out the same time as AC1 and two spin offs were released at the same time as AC2, one for each handheld. So it wouldn’t be unheard of.

    Funny, still haven’t played any of the AC games. The image looks really cool though. Would be interesting if this was a comic book exploring the world of AC a bit more, looking forward to hearing more about this.
