Rights’ 1666 Amsterdam are again in the hands Assassin’s Creed creator




The creative director of the first three volumes in the Assassin’s Creed series, Patrice Désilets, has buried the hatchet with Ubisoft the rights to a new game. Ubisoft granted the rights to the title in 1666 at the Canadian Amsterdam.

Désilets receives the transfer full control of the project on the title. He shows himself delighted with the agreement, but says she first fully developing the action-survival game Ancestors: to establish the Human Family Odyssey for Panache Digital Games. The Canadian is generally as the creative force behind Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood seen, but he lives for years at odds with his former employer Ubisoft.

In 2010 he went to the French company at THQ Montreal to start working on a new project called ‘1666 Amsterdam. After the bankruptcy of THQ in 2012 came the project and Désilets again in the hands of Ubisoft, where the creative director was fired mid-2013. The development of Amsterdam in 1666 came to a standstill and Désilets decided to sue Ubisoft to regain control of the rights. That’s succeeded.

Chances are that the Canadian and his team resume development, but when is not clear. About the game itself is also little known, except that it will play in Amsterdam at the time of the Golden Age, with gameplay that will be similar to the Assassin’s Creed gameplay. Désilets left before that he was inspired by, among other Rembrandt paintings.
