Default Like Assasin's Creed? Well looks like most the talent left to THQ.

Not sure if this is good news for Ubisoft and the franchise, but it appears THQ is snapping up their developers rather quickly. So much so they had to file a court order. I wonder if this is another publisher/developer squabble ala Activision/Infinity Ward or if it's just a bunch of people unhappy. Interesting stuff!

Guess it doesn't mean that they have all the AC talent, but they did get about 4 top tier individuals. If they do another AC, I wonder if it will affect the quality of the game.

Unless I'm mistaken, former top tier people involved with AC1, such as Jade Raymond, weren't involved with the latest AC and it still turned out fine.

Awesome win for THQ, love the push they have been making lately, but I wouldn't worry about AC's future.

Jade Raymond didn't really have much input into the game from a design perspective anyways. As far as I know, she was there just to promote the game and look pretty.

No.

I've heard there were like 400+ people working on AC2 and ACB, so I doubt any small group of individuals leaving would be a blow to that franchise. And they've already stated (off the record, but trusted sources) that another AC is coming this holiday.

As for THQ, if they make more games like Darksiders, I'll be very happy.

A new IP as boring as AC.. yay i guess

Seriously though, hopefully they can vastly improve the campaign of Homefront 2.

The KAOS guys come from a MP focused background and my guess is that the new Montreal studio will be handling SP while KAOS will do the MP
