Patrice Desilets, creator of Ubisoft's well-known Assassin's Creed series, opened up about working for the publisher in a recent interview with Gameology, in which the developer says that working for the company meant "political lying" to gamers.
His comments are as follows:
“My biggest struggle with being in an organization is that I was the guy at the end or in the middle also… I was the guy doing interviews like what we’re doing right now and I had to come up with political lying and I would receive comments and decisions made by other people and not me because it’s all about compromising when you’re in a big organization somehow,” he said. “And as my role, the creative director, it’s tough to live by the decisions of others when being in front of the camera or Skype and I said I’m not a really good liar so I can’t do it anymore.
And then I also realized that when you do a really big franchise, you also make money for other people and they don’t really care about you (Laugh). So I said, enough! if I do another Assassin’s Creed at least it would be for me and my guys and also for Quebec and for my people in Montreal.”
A recently released trailer for the game can be found below:
