Darby McDevitt has been overseeing the larger narrative of the Assassin’s Creed franchise for a long time now, operating as the master of the series’ lore and the person who’s generally been in charge of deciding what direction the series’ larger narrative should take. He’s announced, however, that he is leaving Ubisoft Montreal after over a decade at the studio.

McDevitt hasn’t talked about where he’s headed next, simply saying that he’s “decided to set forth on a new adventure.” He joined Ubisoft in 2011, following which he was the lead writer on Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, while also working on Assassin’s Creed Unity. In 2017, he became the Narrative Director, following which he worked on Assassin’s Creed Origins, and most recently, on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Given the general focus and direction that McDevitt’s work has lent to Assassin’s Creed in the years he’s been the narrative director, his loss is surely going to be a big one for the franchise and for Ubisoft.
