: Today, Patrice Desilets, developer on the Assassin's Creed
and Prince of Persia
franchises, struck out on his own with a new, Montreal-based studio: Panache Digital Games.
Desilets was creative director on the first two Assassin's Creed
games but left Ubisoft Montreal in 2010
during the development of the third title in the franchise.
He popped up again
at THQ Montreal, but after that publisher was cut up and sold off
following its bankruptcy, Ubisoft ended up with
the studio. Desilets soon departed the company
once again, and this time sued it
over his termination.
This story contains so much info on Desilets' history because there's absolutely no info
on Panache Digital Games' page, though there is a spiffy logo and a photo of some moose.
