From Prince to Assassin

leave a comment »

I’m a bad employee, if you think about it. I was asked to do a Prince Of Persia game and I didn’t. Ubisoft were like, “That’s not what we want. We still need our prince!’”

Assassin’s Creed Creative Director, Patrice Désilets [via EDGE]

This is the kind of vision you want to see in the videogaming industry but in the current economic climate innovation and risk are commodities that very few want to indulge. The video above must have caused alarm bells to ring at Ubisoft at the time. Good for them that they had the foresight to make it a new IP and not a Prince of Persia retread.
