Assassin’s Creed Creator is Suing Ubisoft

Patrice DésiletsPatrice Désilets – the creator of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, one of Ubisoft’s top brands – has filed a lawsuit against the publisher, following from his departure of the company two weeks ago.

Seeking $400,000 and the turnaround rights to the 1666 game he was previously developing (apparently titled 1666: Amsterdam), Désilets is primarily responsible for the first two Assassin’s Creed games. Having left Ubisoft back in 2010 to work with THQ Montreal, he returned to the company after THQ Montreal was sold to Ubisoft in an auction earlier this year. It was two weeks ago that Désilets claims he was terminated from the company after a disagreement regarding his full creative control of his projects being taken away from him.

With Ubisoft stating that they have received Désilets’ ‘legal request’ and are currently evaluating their options, we could very well be seeing yet another big lawsuit case on our hands.
