Desilets may not return to Ubisoft
"Too soon to say for certain" if acclaimed Assassin's Creed designer will stay on board, according to Ubisoft representative.
Assassin's Creed designer Patrice Desilets, who heads up what is now formerly THQ Montreal, may not stay on board following Ubisoft's wholesale purchase of the company yesterday. A Ubisoft representative told Polygon that Desilets' fate has not yet been determined.
"It's too soon to say for certain, but we are very excited about THQ Montreal becoming part of Ubisoft," the company said. "In the coming weeks we'll be looking at how to offer an organizational structure that provides continuity for the creative teams involved. Unannounced projects from THQ Montreal are included as part of the acquisition."
These games, according to bankruptcy documents, are 1666 and Underdog. Firm details on these projects have not yet come to light, though 1666 is expected to sell as many of 4 million copies.
In addition to purchasing THQ Montreal for $2.5 million, Ubisoft snapped up South Park: The Stick of Truth yesterday during the THQ auction for $3.2 million.
