The lights are on
The casualties mount for those brought over from Ubisoft's acquisition of THQ Montreal. Today Jean-Francois Bolvin, a producer on the Assassin's Creed franchise before he moved over to THQ was let go.
Bolvin's departure was tweeted by friend and colleague Patrice Désilets, whose employment was terminated yesterday.
Bolvin's LinkedIn profile – before he moved back to Ubisoft – says he was senior producer on a triple-A project at THQ Montreal alongside Désilets.
The departure of Désilets yesterday, and now Bolvin, would seem to cast doubt as to whether the properties they were working on at THQ (1666 and Underdog) will be continued now that Ubisoft owns the studio, or if they are, that they may be different than Désilets and Bolvin intended.

Désilets left Ubisoft in time they needed him. so I think that's a fair price to pay
It seems like things are getting worse and worse for the video game industry. So many layoffs, game cancelations, lawsuits, etc. It's becoming too much.
