Joystiq reported on an image (Or should I say the image?) that showed up on ubiworkshop.com. While it hasn’t been confirmed yet, I can only imagine that this is related to Assassin’s Creed. According to the UbiWorkstop twitter feed this image is not related to Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. Grzegorz Domaradzki created this piece, but Joystiq has confirmed that Karl Kerschl and Cameron Stewart are also involved in this unnamed project. Joystiq believes that this is part of an unannounced AC comic series.
Taken from Joystiq:
Further evidence pointing to an Assassin’s Creed comic series comes from Cameron Stewart’s most recent post on his illustration blog: “… I do have a couple of secret irons in the fire, including an upcoming new comic series based on an immensely popular property,” he wrote. “It’s doubly exciting because I will be writing as well as drawing, partnered with my friend and studiomate Karl Kerschl.”
The Ubiworkshop website itself is the last mystery, though a general trademark filing suggests that it will be a “computerized online retail store” dealing in merchandise like clothing, artists’ materials, music and video games.
This is compelling evidence, however Gamers Guide to Life seems to think this image is in reference to Assassin’s Creed III. When you have a moment I would recommend checking out their detailed analysis of the image. I would prefer that this means AC3 is closer than we think, but if it’s a comic series I can’t say I wouldn’t be happy.
