Patrice Sues and Seeks IP Rights, Ubisoft Responds

By breadbitten08-06-2013

Oh my! Jilted developer, and creator of Assassin's Creed, Patrice Désilets is suing his former employers at Ubisoft for $400,000 and the right to purchase the '1666' IP, the project he was working on at THQ before they went belly up which was eventually purchased by Ubisoft. Désilets was recently sacked by Ubisoft, where upon Ubisoft said that his departure was the result of them not reaching "a creative compromise."

Patrice on the other hand claimed that he had been terminated and escorted out by guards. Patrice's departure was then quickly followed by the company dismissing senior producer Jean-Francois Bolvin. Game Informer received a reply from Ubisoft on this matter...

"As stated before, the acquisition of THQ Montréal in January allowed Ubisoft to welcome 170 experienced developers to our existing and renowned workforce. Unfortunately, the discussions between Patrice Désilets and Ubisoft aimed at aligning Patrice's and the studio's visions were inconclusive. We received Patrice's legal request and we will take the time needed to evaluate our options. We will make no further comment at this point."

Soulless and sterile; yep, it's a comment issued by a huge corporation alright. Sound off below...
