It's going to be a while before we're playing the next game from Patrice Désilets, the former creative director of the Assassin's Creed series. Though he decided to shack up with THQ a while ago, his noncompete contract with Ubisoft meant he couldn't start active work until this June.
"Patrice did start a little bit ago," said THQ CEO Brian Farrell on a quarterly call today discussing THQ's disappointing results. "We had already assembled a team in Montreal, so he has hit the ground running."
"I have not personally discussed the IP that he has in mind," continued Farrell. "I know that he has several ideas that we want to run through our greenlight process. The idea is to create a triple [A], core gaming experience using the best of his creative abilities."
While Farrell's comments do not provide any new information about what Désilets is actually working on, that THQ has not even greenlit one of the ideas he's been mulling over confirms we're a long ways off.
