Assassin’s Creed novel series in the works

Ubisoft Montreal seem awful confident in their upcoming title Assassin’s Creed. The game won’t hit the street until August and there’s already talk of a movie, for crying out loud. So now that they’ve got the whole gaming world slobbering on itself in anticipation, what do they go and announce next?

Books. Yes, books. Don’t look at me like that. Pocket Books will be releasing three novels to serve as a prequel to the game and an expansion of main character Altair’s story, with the first installment slated for release this October. So if you’re as excited about this game as we are, (and you should be,) this is a little something extra you can look forward to. Provided that you enjoy a good read now and then. I said don’t look at me like that.
