THQ Picking Up Three More Devs From Ubisoft
THQ Montreal head and former Assassin’s Creed developer Patrice Désilets is bringing more Ubisoft talen along with him to his new company.
Désilets left his position as creative director at Ubisoft in October. In an interview with Joystiq, THQ boss Danny Bilson said the company has hired three of Désilets’ former colleagues at his request. just who they are, however, hasn’t been released yet.
“I just know Patrice said, ‘I need these three guys.’ And I said ‘Okay! Whatever you need!’, Bilson said during the interview. “We put all of them on retention and got them started on their non-competes [non-compete agreement]. I kind of know what their roles are, but they were the most important people to Patrice. All three of them are Ubi.”
While he’s technically left Ubisoft, Désilets doesn’t start work until the end of May.
