The main scriptwriter responsible for the story of Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Black Flag is leaving Ubisoft Montreal after 10 years of work. Apart from the aforementioned games, he also worked on Unity, Origins and as the narrative director of Valhalla. He also wrote the story for the great Assassin's Creed: Embers animation. Darby McDevitt announced his resignation on Twitter. He explains his departure by the desire to seek new adventures.
McDevitt has won acclaim from fans for, among other things, phenomenally connecting the various threads scattered throughout the Assassin's Creed series and has been called the series' loremaster. His first writing job with Ubisoft was on the Discovery and Bloodlines, released on portable consoles. In 2013, he received the Canadian Video Game Award for his script for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. He was also known as a spokesperson for the aforementioned game series about the brotherhood of assassins. His departure will certainly be a big loss for Ubisoft Montreal.
His last role with the team was as Valhalla's narrative director. Ubisoft Montreal still plans to support the newest installment in the series, given the two announced expansions. The official Twitter account of the Assassin's Creed series posted a thank you to the screenwriter.
