    Ubisoft Puts Hold on 1666

    The company has ceased work on the game 1666 following the firing of former Assassin's Creed designer Patrice Desilets, reports VG247. "After more than two months of discussion with Desilets, we couldn't align our vision both on project development and team management, so consequently our collaboration has ended," said CEO Yves Guillemot during an investor call. "We have suspended development on 1666 for an undisclosed time."


    Desilets had departed Ubisoft Montreal to work for THQ, but returned to the company when it bought the IP rights for 1666 at the THQ auction in January. He departed the company last week. The indefinite suspension of production is believed to have been initiated by Ubisoft to prevent the 1666 IP rights from returning to Desilets.

    Guillemot also revealed that Ubisoft will release two more unannounced games in 2013, one of which will be a new IP for the company. You can check out that article here

    This is all a hot mess, and it's really making Ubisoft look foolish in the manner. It's the equivalent of having an online dating site hook you up with your ex, in having Ubisoft even bid on the IP when you have a disgruntled ex-developer heading the project. Hopefully this doesn't affect the other few hundred people who were working on the title too bad, but damn - way to screw this up Ubisoft.
