Assassin’s Creed: Unity Headed by Revelations Director
Alexandre Amancio is back…with a vengeance.
While we were somewhat bummed to hear that Assassin’s Creed III’s director would be heading up development for Far Cry 4, there is some slightly better news for Assassin’s Creed: Unity in that it will have Alexandre Amancio as its creative director.
Who is Amancio? He directed Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the final chapter in the saga of Ezio Auditore of Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood fame. While not the best game of the three, Revelations was still a solid effort overall. Amancio had left Ubisoft after Revelations but is now back to direct Unity.
His involvement was leaked by Jade Raymond in a tweet (subsequently removed) and further digging by Game Informer on LinkedIn confirmed his role.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be out on PS4, Xbox One and PC in the Holiday season and is the first game in the series to launch exclusively for next-gen. It will be showcased at Ubisoft’s E3 media briefing.
