    Patrice Désilets, co-creator of Assassin's Creed, gained control of his abandoned Ubisoft project 1666 Amsterdam last week after agreeing to drop his lawsuit against them. Désilets was working on the game at THQ Montreal when the studio was bought by Ubisoft in 2013. He was fired a few months later and escorted out of the building without being allowed to say goodbye to his team or collect his personal belongings. The game was then canned by Ubisoft.

    Désilets showed footage from the game when it was being developed for the last generation consoles at the Reboot Develop conference last week. An attendee uploaded a video to YouTube:



    Panache Digital Games, Patrice's company, are focused on their current game - Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey - so it is unclear when work on 1666 Amsterdam might commence.

    I like the animated dutch paintings in the beginning, the rest seems so-so.

    Looks like it could have been really good, it certainly looks beautiful - and a fair chunk of cash seems to have been thrown at it, so it may get revived at some point? Although, you have to wonder how much of a hard-sell something called 'Amsterdam' would be? I mean, the sales pitch would have been a toughie...
