Patrice Desilets, best known for creating the Assassin’s Creed franchise before he left to join THQ in 2010, has returned to Ubisoft. He was working at THQ Montreal when the publisher went bankrupt and the studio was hence purchased by Ubisoft during the January auction.

A spokesperson for the company stated to Polygon that, “We are very pleased to welcome Patrice to Ubisoft again and anticipate that this renewed partnership will produce new ideas and high-quality titles for Ubisoft’s customers.

“In the coming weeks we’ll be looking at how to offer an organizational structure that provides continuity for the creative teams involved. Unannounced projects from THQ Montreal are included as part of the acquisition.”

Currently, there are two projects under construction: 1666, with Desilets leading, and Underdog. Both are working titles so expect the final games to be radically different. As for whether Desilets will return to the franchise that has made so much money for Ubisoft, we’ll have to wait and see.
