The lights are on
About two and a half years ago, former Assassin's Creed director Patrice Désilets left Ubisoft and later joined forces with THQ Montreal. In an odd twist of fate, today's auction has brought that studio under the umbrella of Ubisoft. What does this mean for Patrice?
Polygon touched base with Ubisoft, and the publisher's response failed to clear things up.
"It's too soon to say for certain, but we are very excited about THQ Montreal becoming part of Ubisoft," said a representative for Ubisoft.
If Patrice does return to Ubisoft, it may make for some interesting dynamics around the company considering that Ubisoft obtained an injunction against THQ after his departure.

lol go figure
That's going to be one odd office.
Patrice: Heheheey guys, remember when I told everyone to kiss my ass before I left? Yeaaaah its all water under the bridge now, right?
Huh. Touché Ubisoft, touché indeed.
M. Night shaymalan couldn't have done better
So he left when the series was still good? No wonder its gone downhill big time. Anyway with his return I doubt he would be working on the AC franchise
Aww the irony, looking forward to seeing how that plays out.
that twist. haha. I bet he said "didn't see that coming"
Holy ***! Maybe Assassin's Creed will be good again, and NOT have horrible endings.
It's like when GiantBomb was bought by CBS, the owners of Gamespot.com (the same website that fired said creator of GiantBomb before he went on to create it and recruit several of those who left Gamespot after).
