Assassin’s Creed’s lead writer has made a return to Ubisoft

DARBY MCDEVITT returns after a short time away

Back in March this year, Darb McDevitt, the narrative director for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla had announced his departure from the team to embark on a ‘new adventure’… a few months later – he’s already back!

“It’s true!” McDevitt tweeted. “As I pondered my career over the past year, I focused on my desire to explore new ideas and unknown frontiers.

He didn’t give too much away, where Assassin’s Creed may venture into, but as many creed gamers will know, it’s nice to have him back on the team.

Before jumping the ship, he was involved in some pretty in-depth work with the Ubisoft team running back to 2009 and the whole series in general, most of his credits include the popular titles: Assassin’s Creed: Discovery and Bloodlines and run through the mainline games Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Unity, Origins, and Vahalla.
