Aconyte is delighted to announce it has licensed its range of all-action novels by 404 Editions

Aconyte, the fiction imprint of global games group Asmodee, is delighted to announce it has licensed its range of all-action novels set in the worlds of Ubisoft’s video games for French translation by noted pop culture publishing house 404 Editions, an imprint of Editis.

Beginning in early Summer of 2022, 404 Editions will kick off an ongoing range of novels from across some of Ubisoft’s most popular game worlds, including Assassin’s Creed,® Watch Dogs®, Tom Clancy’s The Division and Splinter Cell, and more. These series will explore never-before-seen parts of these deeply imaginative settings to create a variety of original stories, some revealing the hidden histories of fan-favourite characters, and opening up whole new possibilities for action and adventure.

“We’re delighted to partner once more with Aconyte, this time to bring iconic Ubisoft universes to French readers through exciting novels. We’re convinced that by combining our strengths we can be successful in making fans fall in love with these innovative stories”, said Alexandra Bentz, head of 404 Editions.

The originals are being published in English by Asmodee Entertainment’s Aconyte Books imprint, with whom 404 Editions already has a multi-year partnership for several ranges of novels based on both Asmodee board games, and characters from across the Marvel universe.

“Novelizations that tell the story behind new games are always great reading, but these previously untold stories, characters and settings will build on that to truly bring some of Ubisoft’s most exciting worlds to vivid life,” said Marc Gascoigne, Aconyte’s publisher.
