Patrice Desilets founds his own studio, Panache Digital Games

The Assassin's Creed and Prince of Persia man strikes out on his own after multiple messy breakups with Ubisoft.
Newsbrief: 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.
