Report: Assassin’s Creed Creative Director Quits

According to a report via Game Informer, the creative boss of Assassin’s Creed, Patrice Désilets, has quit his job at Ubisoft Montreal, leaving in the late stages of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s development.

Ubisoft told Game Informer that they don’t comment on rumor or speculation, so it can’t be confirmed at the moment that he has indeed walked out, though it does seem likely.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood continues Ezio’s story of Papal conspiracy. After taking the church, he is moving on to Rome to take on the most powerful people in the world. The game is set to feature multiplayer gameplay for the first time in the series history, and it follows after a stunning improvement in the series with the second game.

Assassin’s Creed II improved the story, the gamely and the settings, featuring brilliantly detailed versions of Renaissance Florence and Venice.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is due out this holiday season. We’ll see if Désilets departure hurts the development at all.
