Patrice Desilets launches Panache Digital Games

Original Assassin's Creed creative director opens new studio.

Panache Digital Games

Original Assassin’s Creed creative director Patrice Desilets has launched a new Montreal-based studio called Panache Digital Games.

After leaving Ubisoft, Desilets was working on a new IP at the 2010-formed THQ Montreal. However, when THQ went bankrupt, the Montreal studio was auctioned off the Ubisoft, and Desilets was terminated within the following months.

Desilets provides no hints at what his new studio is working on. The website contains a logo and a subscription form. And a tweet from Desilets only provides the hashtag “Play With Panache.”
