Assassin’s Creed lead writer returns to Ubisoft after seven months away

The author behind some of the stories and dialogues in Assassin’s Creed games, such as Apocalypse, Black Flag, and even last year’s Hall of Valor, Darby McDevitt, has returned to Ubisoft.

This news comes from Chronicles of Video GamesAccording to reports, McDevitt returned to the company only seven months after leaving the company. At that time, he started working for the developer Illogika Games. When he left Ubisoft in March, McDevitt said he wanted to undertake “a new adventure” and it seemed that he had either completed that adventure or decided that he would prefer those that involve hidden blades.

“Yes, I have returned to Ubisoft,” McDevitt said VGC“As I thought about my career in the past year, I focused on the desire to explore new ideas and uncharted territory. To my delight, this is reflected in my return to Ubisoft’s work [Assassin’s Creed]. I am very happy to continue my journey. stay tuned. ”

McDevitt’s return to Ubisoft may be a great relief for the company, because as VGC Note that McDevitt’s departure means that the Assassin’s Creed series has lost a major polymath, especially considering that Corey May left Ubisoft in 2015.

McDevitt helped write the narrative of the Assassin’s Creed games, the short stories and dialogues in each game. Some of the games in the series include Revelations, Black Flag, Unity, Origins and last year’s Valhalla. It is already Ubisoft’s second best-selling game and has only been launched for one year.

According to reports, the next Assassin’s Creed game will be called Infinity. It will be a real-time service game designed to serve as a platform for multiple small-scale assassin stories, rather than the traditional version of the series. Maybe McDevitt will help write the overall story of Infinity, or he will write some smaller stories to be published on the live service platform.
