UPDATE 8/11/2014 05:00 PM PST -- A USAopoly representative reached out to GameSpot saying that the company doesn't have the license for Assassin's Creed and that it will not be releasing this game in North America.
According to the listing on retailer Toy Art's website, the game is being published in Europe by Winning Moves.
The original story appears below.
USAopoly, which creates special-themed versions of Monopoly under license from Hasbro, will release an Assassin's Creed-themed version of the board game. For now, the game is only being released in Europe, where some retailers are already taking preorders.
Whereas the hat, car, iron, and other token pieces represent players in the normal version of Monopoly, Assassin's Creed Monopoly lets you choose between the series' different protagonists. You can play as Altair, Ezio, Connor Kenway, his grandfather Edward Kenway, Aveline, or the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity, Arno Dorian.
Other game pieces will also be changed to match the Assassin's Creed theme. Money will be changed into Abstergo credits, and the usual real estate will be swapped out for historical locations featured in the series. Abstergo Industries and Abstergo Entertainment will replace the game’s original prime properties, Boardwalk and Park Place.
USAopoly hasn't said when or if the game will be released in other territories, but it has released all their other gaming inspired board games in North America before.
The Assassin's Creed Monopoly isn't the only board game based on the series. In February, Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed: Arena, a 2-4 player tabletop game created in partnership with Cryptozoic Entertainment (makers of Walking Dead and Adventure Time board games and card decks).
