For the Assassin’s Creed series, we can say that its future is in danger. Veteran writer Darby McDavitt, who has signed on to many games, also left Ubisoft.
Now we can worry about the future of the Assassin’s Creed series. Veteran writer Darby McDavitt, who has signed many plays of the series, made a statement yesterday after 10 years. Ubisoft Montreal announced that he was leaving his studio. As a result, the series lost two of its great lorekeepers.
Where is the Assassin’s Creed series headed?
Assassin’s Creed ValhallaMcDavitt is now leaving Ubisoft Montréal. In a statement he made on his Twitter account, he announced the situation as follows:
“Today is my last day at Ubisoft Montreal!
After working with great people for ten years, creating an incredible series of stories and characters, and communicating with our great fans, I decided to embark on a new adventure.
A special thank you to all the fans and creators who have supported and spread our work over the years. Thank you for your attention! With my deepest respect and admiration. It was a lifetime honor to know many of you. “
McDavitt shared the breakup news on his Twitter account yesterday, but did not say anything about where he will work in the future. Leaving the author from Ubisoft means the loss of two major loremasters for the Assassin’s Creed series. Corey May, the lead author behind the first game and several subsequent AC games, left the company in 2015.
While the series was on its journey at Ubisoft Montreal, we also saw that some sequels came from Quebec and Sofia studios. The last released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released at the end of last year and was signed by Ubisoft Montreal and Milan studios.
