Play.tm reports that Ubisoft has confirmed an Assassin's Creed novelisation from the publisher Penguin will be released later this month.
The novel is titled "Assassin's Creed: Renaissance," and is written by Oliver Bowden. I couldn't find a book description on either Amazon or Tower Books, but Play.tm says it will be an expansion of Ezio's tale. Whether that means a prequel or continuance is anyone's guess. The book has a release date of Nov. 26
"Penguin are hugely excited to be publishing the novelization to the second Assassin's Creed game," Alex Clarke, the Penguin editorial director, told Play.tm. "This partnership presents at last a way for traditional book-publishing to cross-over with the ever growing and increasingly exciting world of gaming media."
