Ubisoft has announced a new expanded-universe comic for the Assassin's Creed franchise. According to Polygon, the comic, dubbed Assassin's Creed: Brahman, will take place in 19th century India under the British colonial rule, and will star Indian Assassin Arbaaz Mir, but much of the story is unknown so far. The comic was announced at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con by Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag writer Brenden Fletcher.
While Fletcher will be writing the comic, its art will be handled by Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl—the same creative team responsible for Assassin's Creed: The Fall and Assassin's Creed: The Chain comics. Fletcher has stated that the comic will reveal the future of the Assassin’s Creed franchise after the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.
