Darby McDevitt, historical director of Ubisoft, will return to be part of the team working on Assassin’s Creed Infinity
Ubisoft is seeing various changes within it: starting from the most recent abandonment of one of the cornerstones of the Far Cry saga, the now ex executive producer Dan Hay, we should also remember the various accusations of discrimination and harassment reported by some employees, who they led at the exit of other important figures, like Michel Ansel, or even Asgraf Ismail, director of Black Flag, Origins and Valhalla. The new Assassin’s Creed, called “Infinity”, will renew the saga in many aspects; nevertheless, the return of Darby McDevitt, historical director of the series will mark one nostalgic breath of air for longtime fans.

Speaking of the characteristics that we will be able to observe in Assassin’s Creed Infinity, it is reported through various rumors how could it be a title without the open-world that has characterized the series for some time now. In addition, Ubisoft CEO Guillemot long ago ruled out the possibility that he saw it as a free-to-play game. This new chapter will be very large, it will contain numerous narrative elements and will aim to be innovative, while having everything that Assassin’s Creed players have always seen and loved in previous chapters, from the very beginning.
It’s true! As I pondered my career over the past year, I focused on my desire to explore new ideas and unknown frontiers. Much to my delight, this is reflected in my return to Ubisoft to work on AC. I’m excited to continue my journey. Stay tuned!
