The writer behind some of the stories and dialogue in Assassin’s Creed games like Revelations, Black Flag, and even last year’s Valhalla, Darby McDevitt, has returned to Ubisoft.
This news comes over Video Games Chronicle, who reports that McDevitt is back at the company just seven months after leaving. During this time he started working for the developer Illogika Games. When he left Ubisoft in March, McDevitt said he wanted to take on “a new adventure” and it appears that he has either ended that adventure or decided to prefer one that involves hidden blades.
“Yes, I returned to Ubisoft,” said McDevitt VGC. “When I was thinking about my career last year, I focused on my desire to explore new ideas and unknown boundaries. Much to my delight, this is reflected in my return to Ubisoft to work on it [Assassin’s Creed]. I look forward to continuing my journey. Stay tuned.”
McDevitt’s return to Ubisoft is likely to be a huge relief to the company as a VGC notes that McDevitt’s departure meant the Assassin’s Creed series had lost one of its major Loremasters, especially given the fact that Corey May left Ubisoft in 2015.
McDevitt helped write the narration of the Assassin’s Creed games, the smaller stories that are included, as well as the dialogue. Some of the games in the series that he has credits for are Revelations, Black Flag, Unity, Origins and Valhalla from last year, which has been Ubisoft’s second best-selling game for a year.
The next Assassin’s Creed game will reportedly be called Infinity and it will be a live service game designed to serve as a platform for several smaller Assassin stories rather than the traditional release for the series. Maybe McDevitt will help write the overall story of Infinity, or maybe he will write some of the smaller stories that will be posted on the live service platform.
