Kotaku: "Earlier this morning THQ confirmed that Patrice Désilets, the former creative director behind Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series, was forming a new studio in Montreal for them. Désilets emailed an open letter to Kotaku to explain why.
As you may know, last May, I made the difficult decision to leave Ubisoft after 13 incredible years. I felt that it was the right time for me to pursue new opportunities as well as enjoy life outside the industry. Since then, a lot of speculation and rumours grew as to where the next chapter of my career would bring me."
