Assassin’s Creed : Forgotten Temple is planned to have a total of three seasons and a total of 150 episodes, with new episodes being released weekly. The original webcomic will be published by REDICE Studio and will expand on the story of Edward Kenway in the aftermath of events of Assasin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
