Other Media

Being one of the most famous and great games, it’s not surprising if Assassin’s Creed Game Series had re-creation in other media such as TV series and films, books (Both fiction and non-fiction), comics and audio dramas. Novels and Magazines are also on the list.

Ubisoft created the TV series keeping the main games as the base. Short animated films were good but the film with the same name of the game “Assassin’s Creed” got some negative reviews. Assassin’s Creed: Gold, the audio-based drama is a stand-alone story with casting numerous famous figures. 

Closing Thought

Though the fans were disappointed to see that Ubisoft didn’t return to the original storyline about what happened to Desmond after Assassin’s Creed III, this series got enough support and love along with those criticisms. You can rest assured, Ubisoft will release more to make this Assassin’s Creed Game Series heavier. Also, the assassin’s gamers hope the best for the upcoming one, Valhalla.

It became Ubisoft’s best selling franchise and one of the highest-selling games of all time by selling over 140 million copies as of 2019 September.
