The Assassin's Creed Expanded Universe (often abbreviated to ACEU) refers to all media outside of the main Assassin's Creed video-games created by Ubisoft. Though they are in the same canon as the main games, the main games are considered the primary canon, while all other media, including spin-off games, comics, books, and short stories, are considered "secondary canon".
As of right now, the ACEU consists primarily of short stories, with the first of what has been stated to be "several" spin-off games currently being developed. The game will be called Assassin's Creed: Kingdom, and will be set in Victorian England.
