Assassin’s Creed creator and Game Designer, Patrice Desilets has announced that he is leaving Ubisoft after just a few short months back on their roster. Desilets was working for THQ Montreal until the company went bankrupt and was acquired by Ubisoft. Ubisoft followed through and kept Desilets and engaged him in discussions. However, those discussions lead to Ubisoft and Desilets on different sides of the fence which led Desilets to leave the company… again.
We wish nothing but the best for Patrice Desilets, we hope he gets back to making games soon.
UPDATE (2:55pm EST) – Polygon reached out to Desilets and asked for a comment. He told them “Contrary to any statements made earlier today, this morning I was terminated by Ubisoft.” Desilets continued, “I was notified of this termination in person, handed a termination notice and was unceremoniously escorted out of the building by two guards without being able to say goodbye to my team or collect my personal belongings. This was not my decision.” Patrice Desilets plans on fighting this decision. We will provide more information as we receive it.
