Patrice Désilets, the former creative director behind the Assassin's Creed series who left Ubisoft for rivals THQ last year, was not alone in making the move. He brought others with him. So many that THQ has had to go get a court order.
Désilets left Ubisoft in May and announced his new role at THQ in October. In that time, three other men crucial to the success of the Assassin's Creed series - artistic director Alex Drouin, production manager Mark Besner and associate producer Jean-Francois Boivin - left Ubisoft as well.
