Ubisoft has placed Patrice Désilets' mysterious 1666 project on hold following the creative director's recent departure from the company.
Désilets, creative director of the first two Assassin's Creed games, recently returned to Ubisoft when the company bought his Montreal-based studio from now-defunct publisher THQ.
But the reunion was not to be. Last week, after less than two months back at the company, Désilets was shown the door.
