Following the surprise announcement last week that Ubisoft had unceremoniously and quietly fired Patrice Desilets, the man who created Assassin’s Creed, they’ve now confirmed that work on the title he was heading up has been suspended.

During the company’s 2013 investor earnings call, CEO Yves Guillemont claimed that they had “suspended Project 1666 for an undisclosed period of time”. Guillemont also noted that “After more than two months of discussions with Patrice, we couldn’t align our visions both on the project development and team management.”

“Consequently, our collaboration has ended.”

Project 1666 was in development at THQ Montreal, which was acquired by Ubisoft in January (along with Desilets).

Certainly changes the “they fired me for no reason” story.
