'Assassin', 'Persia' Director Moves to THQ
Just days after word leaked that Guillermo del Toro is working with THQ on a number of new game IPs comes this shocker: Patrice Désilets, the man behind the Prince of Persia and Assassin’s Creed games has signed on with THQ as well.
Désilets is best known for his super-successful work with Ubisoft Montreal on those two bestselling game franchises. At THQ, he’s similarly expected to create and develop an entirely new game franchise, but just what that franchise will be is entirely unknown. Désilets will work with a new, dedicated studio of his own, based in Montreal, but working under the THQ banner.
He will begin his work for THQ next summer, which he’ll begin by recruiting and hiring his own team of developers.
So what do you make of this? And what do you suppose Désilets has up his sleeve next?
