I'll be disappointed if he left as well, Patrice makes this game shine, just on the way he presents them at E3s and what not. He makes them sound epic and you can tell he is passionate about Assassins Creed. I hope all this is BS because I don't think I'll see AC the same way.

If he is walking away, I'd be more interested in knowing why walk away from such a lucrative franchise, unless there was a better offer.

So true. The guy seems to have just the most amazing passion and dedication for his work. If true, I'll definitely miss seeing him the most at the E3 presentations; which, as you said, he made the game just sound so epic!

Maybe it wasn't all about the money for him. As the article mentioned, he perhaps just didn't like the direction AC is headed in - and maybe didn't have a say in the matter. Eh.. I seriously hope this isn't true.

I'm not surprised after hearing about Clint, honestly. It's too bad Patrice left, but we all know why this is happening.

Invasive DRM, yearly sequels, cash grabbing, false advertising, etc.

I would've done the same in his place.

I was so looking forward to his E3 brotherhood show too. Man, AC3 won't be the same without him.

I mean, look what happened to the prince of persia games without him and his team. I like the last two games but they are no where near as good.

From the update on the article:

UPDATE: Ubisoft responded to our story with the following statement: "With his role on project essentially done, Patrice Désilets has decided to take a creative break from the industry and is no longer working on Assassin's Creed Brotherhood."

A break?! So is he coming back or they're just basically saying (as not to give any negativity to AC:B) Brotherhood is fine and he's gone? I'm guessing the latter. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Hmm hopefully that means he just made sure they weren't breaking his series canon, and is now taking a nice real holiday before they start on heavy AC3 developement. Hopefully anyway!

Just noticed the update at the top that says he left did leave Ubisoft.

Wonder why? The article gave some pretty good reasons..

Without even considering the effect his departure will have on the future of the AC series, it's just sad to see him go. He's personally been behind my favorite games of the past decade and I'll miss him for sure. Best wishes to him wherever he goes or decides to do.

That sux, very sad to hear of this news! Maybe your right (Noccifer) about the direction this was going and he didn't agree with it.

Though I hope that he is just taking a break from AC: Brotherhood but will come back and work on AC 3 when it's time. Seriously if they fudge up this franchise I'm going to be disappointed at Ubisoft for downgrading it. Either way we don't know the full story, for all we know is he taking a break like they said.

I just hope he does come back and works on AC3. Seriously they still have till 2012 to release the game, that's alot of time given the fact that AC:B is coming out later this year hopefully.

Wouldn't be surprised if they already took photographs of there next location(s) for AC3.

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Tis a sad day! Ubisoft have stated that they're taking the activision approach, and are going to release a new franchise title every 12-18 months. This obviously fudges up the whole AC = Trilogy thing Patrice was going for. To Patrice, the consumers have consumed the deliciousness that was AC2, and now they're collecting the leftover waste and recycling it into a mass-produced cash cow. It's easy to see why Patrice left. He didn't want to be responsible for the upcoming epic fail Ubisoft will utterly turn AC into.

Still though, I'll probably get ACB for story alone, and I do admit I'm intersted to see where the MP goes, but I'll only probaly get it after it's price crashes through the floor. I don't have the money to buy watered-down franchise titles every year.

Good for you Patrice. Give Ubisoft the finger, and walk away from their fail.

I agree with Patrice as well, I hate when companies do that, takes away from the quality of the game just so they can release a damn game. They already did this with Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands and me being a fan of the Sands of Time Trilogy, i was disappointed with them for what they did, in fact I didn't even bother renting the game, eff that!!

If Ubisoft effs up the story in AC I'll be utterly ****ed at them. Corey May is a great script writer, I know he worked on Sands of Time Trilogy as well, so as long as he has a say so in what happens in AC then there is still hope! I hope...

They do milk his game mega. The apple store has tons of AC games. This new multiplayer mode is an entire iPod/phone game just it's Gta top down style. It's fun but will get old quick! Hopefully in 3rd person it lasts longer.

Hopefully this isn't true. He made the Assassin's Creed franchise and he deserves to have a say in anything that they do in it. They can probably make the game great just like it was, but if he left because of things like milking the franchise, or that he didn't have enough say in what goes on with his series then that would be pretty sad.

Damn, I met a guy that just got an AC tatoo done and told him he was probably gonna regret it in the futre.

I'm so mystical sometimes.

Anyway, Ubi needs to get their together, else more of this will happen. They wanted to be "Ubi"-quitous, but now they're just trying to please their investors. Stop caring about that and start trusting your developers. Games that are 2-4 years in the making usually end up better than those that take only one.

Plus, who are they kidding? Even series so uninspired as that rotten fish that is CoD have more then 1 year for the developers since it's 2 different studios!

Clint Hocking, Patrice Desilets... Who's next?

I also suspect his move has something to do with the milking of the series. Altair's Chronicles, Bloodlines, Discovery and Brotherhood may not seem like much now, but it could very well spiral out of control and become A Kingdom Hearts type series. Releasing side games every single year that will suck the series dry.

This effectively kills AC as a franchise with me, and what's more if his decision to leave is due to Ubi's ridiculous idea of copying Activision with yearly updates I think they are SOOOOOO wrong in doing that. It only serves to cheapen up a game because there is not enough time between each installment to make it really worth while. It's really just a cheap grab at money although I am sure many a dumbo gamer will fall for it a buy just as they do with games like CoD, which is my opinion is one of THE most overrated games around. Sorry I dont subscribe to the theory that graphical updates alone make a good game. You can spin as much BS as you like on the cover and build up huge amounts of hype but it doesn't really translate in to a great game. Ubi I sincerely hope you dont destroy my love of many of the games you currently produce.

I'm a fan of:
Call of Juarez
Anno 1404
Assassins Creed
The Settlers (To a much lesser extend since Ubi stuck their dumb nose in BlueByte)

I used to be a major fan of Might and Magic and Heroes of Might and Magic but I truly wish the series had just died when 3DO went bust and dumbo Ubi or any of the other bi guys never had a chance to get their dirty hands all over it. 3DO were **** too and the last really good game in that series was when NWC was a small independent developer.

and if you do really go down this path of copycat with Activision and EA you will lose me as a customer. I dont buy cheap *** games with no more than a load of Hollywood BOOM BS.

I rarely ever come on to forums for a rant and rave but damn this is a stupid move. I Patrice starts his own company and makes a game exactly the same as AC with a different name and sends you broke cause you ****ing well deserve it for making some a stupid, screw your customers for more money, move.

Why is it big gaming companies never learn what makes games popular in the first place, then decide to change to attract more customers regardless of the real cost.

I'm going for now and while I'll still be buying AC BH it may well be the last Ubi title I bother with and I may not be back on any Ubi forum if this is what they a really going to do.

Without a doubt it is still the small independent developers that truly know how to firstly create a good game and then provide proper support for it despite their much lower level of funds to do so. Bye and good luck to all.

I dont normally rant but yes i dont like it, and its not about AC2, its about yearly updates. Many other games where they try to overproduce them (thinking EA sports titles, cheap *** NFS games) are not worth my money. Some of the most loved games are ones where they keep people waiting between each installment, and then when it finally does come out it totally blows you away with its improvements. Yearly updates provide nothing more than a new story at best, and a few rather unimportant graphical updates which are not my motivating factor for buying games. Make unique games that offer something really new and worthwhile each time and instead of flogging one game till its dead, come up with something new while you wait for the tech to improve.

Ubi have their very own example of why its a good idea to wait and not simply keep rushing more of the same game out. Prince of Persia was a dying game for a while but in time it was able to be revived because technology in gaming had advanced enough that when they attempted to do another one it was a major improvement and people thought it was a good game all over again. NFS is the same for EA, a dying game because they rushed out too many of them without any big improvements, NFS Shift has revived it because its very different to previous versions (although I consider it a copycat job on GRID). Time allows technology to advance and make a difference, it also gives you time to actually come up with a great idea instead of just an OK idea for a game.

Just because it's happened with other companies doesn't mean it will happen with Ubisoft, if it does then I'll be disappointed but I'd rather hope for the best and be disappointed than expect them to fail!

Do you think its possible to produce a game of the same quality as AC1/AC2, in less time? and every single year?

Choice, produce 4 ok/average games in 4 years, or produce 2 great games in 4 year.

I choose option 2, and its hard to believe they can maintain the current standards and do it in less time.

One way Activision achieves this is by having more than one group of developers, but that also comes at a price where stories don't always work well together and people dont always buy both games, they still just focus on the one they believe is better, splitting the community.

You could employ more developers at the one studio of course but doesn't that in some way defeat the benefits of increased development rate? You produce twice the number of games but you also now pay twice the number of people minus a few admin staff.

Again, that's you prosuming the worst before you've even seen the results.

I get it, you're a pessimist when it comes to the gaming industry but typing out the same long winded response every time isn't going to make you right lol

Maybe he really is just taking some personal time then ... here's hoping he's just recharging his batteries.

Im super happy knowing he's still the major part of the series.

Awesome.

Now, as long as the world is as detailed as two with Ezios hands always grabbing the right spots as he climbs.

Some buildings are totally unique and he grabs the right planks and what not, it's awesome.
