Patrice Desilets is known for being one of the original creators of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which is a huge part of Ubisoft’s history.
The French video-game industry giant and Desilets parted ways back in 2013, with Desilets claiming they terminated his contract. He took things to court, suing Ubisoft for $400,000 along with the rights to for 1666: Amsterdam.
He was recently featured in an interview with EDGE, via VideoGamer, in which he revealed that he hasn’t played a Ubisoft game since 2012. He only played the first two hours of Assassin’s Creed 3, and didn’t touch it again, because he can’t see the company’s logo on his TV screen.
“I’m not a good person to ask about how I feel about Ubisoft games. I haven’t played an Ubisoft game since 2012. I played the first two hours of Assassin’s Creed 3, and that was it. With all due respect, I love Ubisoft very much, but I cannot see their logo on my TV screen. It feels too personal. This is my flaw. I’m too personal.”
We all wish Patrice Desilets the best with his upcoming project, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
