Following the end of Ezio’s story with Revelations, the Assassin’s Creed team will be moving onto their next chapter… but they’ll now have to do it without their creative director. Alexandre Amancio – who took the role after the previous director left in 2010 – has departed from the studio to join a Quebec-based marketing company.
Amancio previously worked as art director on FarCry 2 before moving to his role on the Assassin’s Creed series. During production of Revelations, Ubisoft had six studios working in tandem to create the game and Amancio was in charge of the entire process. The end result was a title that rests with a respectable score of 80 on Metacritic and sold 1.26 million in its first month.
Ubisoft has yet to comment on the departure or who they may have lined up to take over the position. Still, it’s a disappointment to see Amancio go. In interviews, he seems quite passionate about story-telling and emotional expression as he discusses plotting and refining the storyline of Revelations. We’ll keep you updated about who takes over the reigns as it happens.
