I am pissed, and already most of the AC fanbase is pissed.*

As many of you know, Ubisoft just FIREd Patrice Desilets, than man who created assassins creed, and made it a on amazing series. Now, after a series of questionable games, ubisoft seemed to make the right decision by having Desilets as the creative director again, but for some bullcrap feason, they have fired him. Way to go Ubisoft. You fired the man who brought assassins creed to life, and are now continuing to milk the franchise until it is dry. Unlike Desilets, who put time and effort into the games, ubisoft now is destroying the once great series.*

Patrice is the one and only reason that assassins creed was great in the first place. Lets run down the list of games and see if there is a coincidence or not.

Assassins Creed 1: Desilets is creative director, and it is a masterpiece.

Assassins Creed 2: Desilets is creative director, and it is an even BIGGER masterpiece.*

Brotherhood: Desilets is still participating, but not lead director, and not even credited. Game is good, but not nearly as good as the previous games.

Revelations: some other guy is creative director, and game sucks.

Assassins Creed 3: some other guy, (alex hutchinson or whatever) is creative director, and game had the potential, but is hugely disappointing.

I am telling you, the series sucks whenever Desilets is not involved. *it is not a coincidence that the series has gone downhill ever since he left. AC4 was Ubisoft's chance to redeem the series.

It is UNFAIR what ubisoft is doing to him.

It is UNFAIR what ubisoft is doing to us.

You don't FIRE the man who created Assassin's Creed.*

I had such great expectations for Black Flag, but now that Desilets is gone,.....I just don't know anymore. All I know is that many other angry fans have canceled their preorders, and I may as well. Keep fighting for your game Mr.*
Desilets!!!

Desilets was never creative director of AC4 nor do I think he was involved in any major way. just saying

Hmm, i apologize if not all my facts are correct. What I do know is that he was going to have some sorr of involvment. Maybe he never was going to be creative director. My apologies for that. i still believe he would have benefitted the game

AC4 is already close to completion. Desilet would've had little effect on it because it'd be too much (time and money) to alter the game at this point. Then if the release date got pushed back, people would be livid. PC gamers already are pissed that their version of the game usually gets held back for additional PC features. AC5 is where he could have potentially had some input, but the game has likely already been in production for at least the past few months if not the past year. So Desilet wouldn't have much of a say on that one, either. It wouldn't really be until AC6 or whatever game is released in 2015 before he could have any real impact on the game.

I'll admit, I only got into the AC franchise last December and started with AC3 so I barely know who Desilet is (I have played AC1, AC2/B/R, and Liberations as well, though), but he obviously left Ubisoft before for various reasons. Those reasons likely resurfaced again leading to him being fired. No matter how hard you try, you can't force a square peg into a round hole. If two objects don't work together, no sense forcing it. One or both may break. All you can do is hope Desilet gets hired by a good company and his next game is well worth the money. Then you can put your money where your opinion is and buy that game rather than another AC game.

Ubi should re-hire him, but not because of AC. He has nothing to do with AC4 and likely does not want to be involved in the franchise anymore.

@Wolfmeister1010:


While I share your sentiments to a degree - Ubisoft management being ..., well, detrimental to the quality (as I see it) of games ;); Desilets probably having big potential for making "better" games (or at least games I like better than what others put out) -, I think your post is pretty naïve.

1.) Desilets definetely wasn't involved in the creation of ACIV, and he probably even wouldn't have wanted to be involved. As he probably wouldn't have any special interest in being involved in the creation of future AC-titles, since the direction Ubisoft is heading the series into seems to significantly diverge from what Desilets was aiming for back in the day.

2.) Obviously Ubisoft is not the least bit interested in Desilets any more. Otherwise they wouldn't have treated him the way they (allegedly) have. So it's futile to make a poll whether AC fans want him back or not - that won't make any impression on Ubisoft top heads.

----

Apart from that: It's generally a good thing to give feedback about what is appreciated in a "product" and what is not. This may include aspects like who is the creative director of a game ...

Desilets!!!


LOL Yet you still supported the franchise & purchased AC-R , AC-3 & have pre-ordered AC-4 ...............Way to stand by your principles.

'Great expectations for AC-4 ' - a game that's had almost 2 years Dev time without Patrice - Suddenly counts for nothing after Patrice is hired & fired again within last few months.
Although Patrice never had anything to do with AC-4 at all - Not sure why patrice's return/departure now changes your opinion of AC-4 .


Were you expecting a major overhaul of AC-4 by patrice in the last 6 months of development or something ?? .................Really ?

This will have no impact on AC4:BF what so ever. Patrice didn't work on it. I'm pretty sure he didn't want to work on it. The tragic thing is that he was forced to leave his new IP, called 1666, that he had worked on for a couple of years now. Since he was given more creative freedom at THQ it's safe to say he was the driving creative force behind that project. Being kicked out without being able to complete something he presumably had worked very hard on for a long time and poured a lot of talent into, must be a really crappy feeling. It's the kind of job that is not so easy to find, especially with a mighty enemy like Ubi. I feel for Patrice and hope he finds another project.
