Ubisoft Didn’t Fire Just One Assassin’s Creed Dev Yesterday
Yesterday Ubisoft announced that famed Assassin’s Creed developer and creator, Patrice Desilets, had left the studio after conflicting visions when it came to the franchise’s future. Later it was revealed that Desilets had in fact been fired and was escorted out of the building without getting a chance to say goodbye to his team. Now it’s been revealed that he wasn’t the only one fired yesterday.
Assassin’s Creed developer and also former THQ Montreal employee Jean-François Boivin was also dismissed by Ubisoft yesterday in similar fashion, with Desilets wishing him well over Twitter.

“Thinking of my good friend and producer @JFBoivin who also got fired yesterday. I’m sharing your support with him.”
Boivin previously worked at THQ Montreal with Desilets before Ubisfot acquired the studio when THQ went under. It was surprising to see both developers return afterwards, as many suspected they would leave for other studios rather than returning to Ubisoft.
Seems like the only reason Ubisoft wanted to re-hire them was so that they could fire each developer themselves. That’s an evil way of looking at it.
