Game Informer has just received a statement from Patrice Désilets regarding his departure from Ubisoft. As we reported earlier, Désilets is no long with the publisher and has opened up about the circumstances.

The following statement comes from Désilets by way of his agent.

Contrary to any statements made earlier today, this morning I was terminated by Ubisoft.  I was notified of this termination in person, handed a termination notice and was unceremoniously escorted out of the building by two guards without being able to say goodbye to my team or collect my personal belongings.

This was not my decision.

Ubisoft's actions are baseless and without merit. I intend to fight Ubisoft vigorously for my rights, for my team and for my game.
