Ubisoft has confirmed that Patrice Désilets has returned to the company.

Speaking with Polygon
, the firm issued the following statement: “We are very pleased to welcome Patrice to Ubisoft again and anticipate that this renewed partnership will produce new ideas and high-quality titles for Ubisoft’s customers.”

Back in January when Ubisoft purchased THQ Montreal, Ubisoft Montreal president Yannis Mallat told the Financial Post that the firm was “very happy to look forward to working with [Désilets] again.”

During the THQ auction, Ubisoft purchased THQ Montreal along with the two projects led by Désilets – 1666 and Project Underdog.

Désilets was creative director at Ubisoft Montreal before he left in 2010.
