Patrice Désilets: "I intend to fight Ubisoft"

[Update: Assassin's Creed creative director Patrice Désilets has responded to his departure from Ubisoft, calling it a "baseless" termination. Here's what he told Polygon:

"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.

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

Patrice Désilets, the creative director of Assassin's Creed 1 & 2, has left Ubisoft again after a scant amount of time back.

After leaving to work at THQ in 2010, Désilets returned to Ubisoft when the publisher acquired THQ Montreal and its assets in January. There was speculation that Désilets would continue work on two tentatively titled THQ projects, 1666 and Underdog.

"Unfortunately, since the acquisition, the good faith discussions between Patrice and Ubisoft aimed at aligning Patrice’s and the studio’s visions have been inconclusive," an Ubisoft representative told Game Informer. "As a result, Patrice has left the studio. Our priorities remain with the teams already hard at work on projects in development. They are at the root of Ubisoft Montréal’s past and future successes."

Désilets's response: "I'll survive."
