Assassin’s Creed-maker shows images of unreleased game 1666 Amsterdam




Patrice Désilets has shown for the first images of Amsterdam in 1666. The game was in development since 2010, but was never finished because of bankruptcy and fights for the rights. Meanwhile Désilets holds the rights itself again.

The creative director of the first three Assassin’s Creed games have shown the images of Amsterdam in 1666 at an event where game developer and journalist Brandon Sheffield was present. He filmed the presentation with his phone and published on YouTube. He writes that while it comes to images of a version for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which would have created about two years ago.

About the game itself was hitherto little known. It would be an Assassin’s Creed-like game to be set in Amsterdam at the time of the Golden Age. According Sheffield is the theme of the game “be worse than the devil” and the protagonist can take over the control animals with black magic. In the video can be seen among other famous paintings by Rembrandt and Vermeer. The images are accompanied by the song ‘Le Port d’Amsterdam’ by the Belgian singer Jacques Brel.

1666 Amsterdam is never fulfilled and it is the first time that images of the game are brought out. This week it was announced the creator Patrice Désilets holds the rights to the game again. He worked with Ubisoft on the first three Assassin’s Creed games and went to THQ Montreal in 2010 to work at 1666 Amsterdam there. THQ went bankrupt in 2012, but Ubisoft took over the studio partly, including the rights to the game.

Désilets was fired in 2013 by Ubisoft and thus the development of the game came to a standstill. After his dismissal the Canadian Ubisoft sued to regain control of the rights. Now that’s successful, the risk that the game is still unfinished. When, however, is not known. The Canadian says is first fully developing the action-survival game Ancestors: to establish the Human Family Odyssey for Panache Digital Games.
