"Patrice Desilets left Ubisoft. They snagged him back. And now he's gone again, Kotaku has learned.", writes Kotaku.
Well this was to be expected. The guy leaves Ubisoft to go to THQ, because he didnt like where Assasins Creed was going. Then the new studio he works at and its projects get bought by Ubisoft, after THQ went down. I feel bad for the guy. Just when he thought he got out they pull him back in. I wonder if he will just go indie now or keep trying his luck at a publisher. I hear Eidos Montreal is looking for a game director for Thief after all the previous one's quit.
It seems like he was terminated and didn't leave by choice.
Desilets confirmed that he was fired. Should update the story. Looks like Ubisoft are going to shit-can his game, and get his studio to churn out assets for Assassin's Creed. I guess he disagreed.
I wish he could fix Assassin's Creed, it's like watching your child grow up to be a crack whore.
Wow just wow. I don't get why these sorts of actions have to take place (security guards marching employees out of the offices). I can understand there's potentially a lot of passion involved, but surely there are more humane ways of dealing with these situations.
Hmmm I don't think Ubisoft need any more studios on Assassins Creed so people jumping to that conclusion please wait till we see what they are working on... Is it so ridiculous to (the most likely option) is that Ubisoft didn't see 1666 as a good investment,or as an Ip with any future and so wanted it changed accordingly, or cancelled it. Seems far they are a Buisness after all and we have no idea-it could turn out to have been a crappy game?
He was fired. Without any prior warning, and forced out by them. Probably because of bad history/they didn't want him to have any say. I think we have another West, and Activision coming.
aw he is one cute dude, poor patrice, lol
