|Patrice Desilets left Ubisoft. They snagged him back. And now he's gone again, Kotaku has learned.|
"Unfortunately, since the acquisition, the good faith discussions between Patrice and Ubisoft aimed at aligning Patrice’s and the studio’s visions have been inconclusive. As a result, Patrice has left the studio. Our priorities remain with the teams already hard at work on projects in development. They are at the root of Ubisoft Montréal’s past and future successes.”
IMHO: Good for you Patrice. f*ck those guys. Seriously a sh*tty situation to be put in in the first place, glad he stuck to his principles.
Of course, to be fair, we - or at least I - can't know what precisely has been going on between Ubi and Desilets but even from the outside it's not hard to imagine how things might have gone after the first ACs.
I liked the idea of something positive (imho) being my post #2048, I'm geeky like that. Could have gone into gaming chat but that's mostly for game discussions, not game designers quitting somewhere, please bear with me.
Other opinions, perhaps some Ubisoft fans?
