Will Patrice Désilets Be Returning To His Former Employer?

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.
