A new Assassin’s Creed update is not the update fans of the series will hear. A few weeks ago, Ubisoft announced it Assassin’s Creed goes the live service route, which, as expected, was news met with significant setbacks. Now, a few weeks later, the bad news continues. After 16 years with Ubisoft, the franchise’s art director, Raphael Lacoste, is leaving the company.
On Twitter, Lacoste revealed the news with a fairly standard “goodbye” post, thanks to both Ubisoft and fans of the studio and its games.
“It’s not without emotion I have to tell you that after eight assassins, 16 years at Ubisoft, I have decided to set sail on new adventures and challenges,”
Good morning everyone,
It’s not without emotion I have to tell you that after eight assassins, 16 years at Ubisoft, I have decided to set sail on new adventures and challenges. 1/3 pic.twitter.com/ZynG1pXoK9

As you can see, Lacoste more or less confirms that the two do not differ on bad terms, and that he is really moving on to something new, but it remains to be seen when this will happen, and whether it will even be working. with more video games. Whatever it is, it’s a big loss for Ubisoft, which has softened talent lately, including talent towards the top of the hierarchy.
As always, please leave a comment or two to let us know what you think, or alternatively post me on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ and let me know over there. Is Ubisoft and Assassin’s Creed in trouble?
