Assassin's Creed: Uprising 2 is the second issue of the Titan comic book series Assassin's Creed: Uprising. The comic, written by Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel with art by José Holder was released on 8 March 2017.
The infamous Black Cross shows up to investigate recent happenings at the Project Phoenix labs causing unease amongst the Templar Order.
Meanwhile, Charlotte begins to question her allegiances.
2017: Abstergo Entertainment, Montreal, Canada. Otso Berg and Violet da Costa further discuss the odd events that transpired within Hong Kong. Otso remains confused as to how Assassins evidently came across a greater equipped force in what amounted to an administrative location. Suddenly, both of their phones - along with everyone else's around them - displays the Black Cross icon.
At a nearby retreat, the Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order is holding a meeting - with Alan Rikkin curiously absent. In full armor, the Black Cross approaches the building but is challenged by guards. Showing the Black Cross symbol on his phone, he is subsequently allowed to enter. Addressing the Sanctum directly, he advises them of his status and that the Order has been infiltrated by a fifth column. A seated Otso Berg then stands up to challenge the Black Cross, and is thrown across the room instead. Warning that they are all suspects, he promises to call upon them soon - and leaves by a smoke bomb.
Meanwhile back in London. My'shell has been repairing an Animus, when Charlotte enters the room. They both elect to go a local public house, and get in some drinks. Charlotte questions why My'shell wants to become an Assassin, citing the fact that she now looks at ordinary people around her and immediately can calculate multiple ways to kill them. The Bleeding Effect has turned her into a living weapon, but at what cost? She now wonders how much her ancestors may now be a part of her, and as such begins to question if her own life is just a simulation too - looking out for glitches in every day life.
Otso returns home, and welcomes the Black Cross into his apartment. Removing his mask, André Bolden is revealed within the suit. It had been a perfect ruse, to trick the Sanctum into believing that Berg and the Black Cross were entirely different people. Otso reveals that the goggles were from a division in Europe, and decides to head to Berlin to investigate further.
Outside of the Abstergo Berlin office, Heinrich Hart leaves work for the day. He is immediately intercepted by Galina, Arend and Kiyoshi whom are seeking answers over their losses in Hong Kong. He has been acting as an informant to the Brotherhood, but swears blind he knew nothing of what had lied in wait for them at the Hong Kong site. Demanding he find answers under duress, they leave him in an alleyway.
Shortly after, the Black Cross appears - also seeking answers from Hart. Bizarrely Hart discloses that they had left a breadcrumb trail for him to follow, and that it was about time he arrived. Unleashing a taser whip, Hart unleashes an attack throwing them both through windows of a building as they battle. As Hart reveals his true identity as an Instrument of the First Will, he pulls out a high explosive from his pocket. The Black Cross barely gets to the nearby window before the entire building explodes, and dives into the river below.
