Assassin's Creed: Revelations was released in November, won praise from reviewers, and helped GameStop post $3.02 billion in sales during the holiday period. If that success motivates Ubisoft to make a sequel, it will do so without a key member of the Assassin's Creed development staff.

The Assassin's Creed franchise will move forward without one of its noted developers.

Canadian marketing company Cossette today announced on its website that Assassin's Creed: Revelations creative director Alexandre Amancio has taken the position of chief creative officer at the Montreal-based marketing firm.

"Video games and advertising have many common elements. In both industries, we are always looking for new ways, more innovative, to engage the consumer to the brand," Amancio said, according to a Google translation.

According to Amancio's LinkedIn profile, he joined Ubisoft Montreal in 2005 to work on Far Cry 2 as art director before becoming creative director on Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
