Industry legend Patrice Désilets, the lad who served as creative director on The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and the Assassin’s Creed series, has joined up with THQ after a year off from the industry.
“The creative freedom that THQ gives its artists and developers-and their willingness to make games that truly reflect an artistic vision-really drew me to THQ,” said Désilets. “I plan to build an incredibly talented team at THQ, and am very anxious to get started on creating a new project.”
“Working with the top talent in the industry is one of THQ’s key strategies for creating bold, original, and high-quality games,” said Danny Bilson, THQ’s Executive Vice President of Core Games. “Patrice Désilets is one of the most innovative minds in games, and has proven it by leading the teams behind some of the most influential games of the past and current consoles. Needless to say, THQ can’t wait to unleash his talent.”
