McDevitt has not yet explained what his next adventure will be after spending such a long time in such a prestigious position.
Of course, it’s a curiously similar fate to the former Assassin’s Creed producer Jade Raymond, who recently started a new development team under PlayStation after having closed the Stadia bracket.
The narrative director began his tenure in the series with the Discovery and Bloodlines spin-offs of Assassin’s Creed II in 2009.
he He was then the lead writer of Revelations , the last chapter of Ezio Auditore’s trilogy, and wrote the short Embers .
After these experiences, he was the lead writer of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag , later contributing to both Unity and Origins.
Although for different reasons, there have already been other defections in the Valhalla project, such as that of the game director in very turbulent circumstances.
The game will continue to have updates on updates, such as the one that today restored the last festival “suspended” due to technical problems in recent days.
In addition, there is a paid expansion scheduled for April as part of the Assasin’s Creed Valhalla season pass.
The Ubisoft adventure is also offered in a limited edition exclusive to Amazon, including the full game and downloadable content
