Ubisoft’s acquisition of THQ Montreal development studio during THQ’s bankruptcy sale seems to get uglier by the day. Since completing the transaction, Ubisoft has seen the departure of studio creative director- and former Ubisoft employee- Patrice Desilets. He has since alleged that Ubisoft terminated him and will be fighting to the rights to 1666.
Polygon reported Ubisoft announced the suspension of 1666 during an investment call. No official information about the game has been reported outside of it being trademarked by THQ and mentioned among the companies’ assets.
