Patrice Désilets is best known for helping to create the Assassin’s Creed series. He’s now starting a new chapter with Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey – but it has at least a little in common with his most famous work.
The next game from Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Desilets is out later this year, and while it shares some DNA with his popular historic series, it’s also a departure in many ways.
Amsterdam 1666 has a strange history, originally starting as a Patrice Desilets game under the THQ Montreal label before getting snapped up by Ubisoft when THQ went defunct. Desilets had to fight for ownership of his creation, eventually winning the IP rights for the game in 2016.
