The creator behind the multi-million selling Assassin’s Creed franchise has indicated we may get a glimpse of his new project in a few weeks.
According to Superannuation, Patrice Desilets will be able to divulge information on the game as early as late May, as his non-compete clause with former employee Ubisoft is soon to expire.
The Internet sleuth had this exchange with the video game developer on Twitter: “Will you have any interesting news to share in the next few weeks?”
“Probably, yes...at least, I’m working on it,” replied Desilets.
Desilets was previously working on a project known as 1666, though lost the rights to the game after THQ went under and it subsequently fell into Ubisoft’s lap. While Desilets left the French publisher soon after, he made it clear he was prepared to fight for ownership of the title.
Right now however, it remains unknown if he has won back the rights to the game.
