While there's no new Assassin's Creed game this year to tide over fans, Titan Comics is doing everything it can to keep fans satisfied with its growing line of comics based around the video game series. Next year, Titan merges its current Assassin's Creed ongoings --- Assassins and Templars --- into one series starring characters from throughout the franchise's rich history.

The new title, simply called Assassin's Creed, will be written by Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel, with art by José Holder, who is a storyboard artist on the Assassin's Creed videogames. The new series focuses on and expands key plot points from the game series, starting with The Templars' "Phoenix Project," which aims to unlock the secrets of Those Who Came Before via their DNA.

Assassin's Creed joins Assassin's Creed: Last Descendants - Locus and the manga adaptation Assassin's Creed: Awakening in Titan's slate of comics based around the franchise. The first issue of the new ongoing series will be released in February 2017.
