Patrice Désilets, the former creative director for the Assassin's Creed franchise, has a new job. He's going to be one of the founding members of THQ's new Montreal studio.

"The best way we can deliver fresh, high-quality gaming experiences is by working with the best talent. THQ is delighted to have the opportunity to make a brilliant addition to our team next year with Patrice Désilets," said Danny Bilson, THQ's Executive Vice President of Core Games. "We expect calendar 2011 to be a watershed year for THQ, and adding developers like Patrice helps ensure our focus on new IP and great games charted by leading industry artists."

Désilets is expected to begin working at the studio next summer. No details were provided about his project(s). As Bilson said, though, he's going to be developing new intellectual properties for THQ.
