Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 4 Director Leaves Ubisoft to Set Up New Studio

Ubisoft’s creative director Alex Hutchinson, who is best known for his work on Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 4, has left the developer after seven years of service. Announcing the news on Twitter, he revealed that he co-founded a new company with some “wonderful people” called Typhoon Studios, where he’ll also serve as creative director.

“Extremely proud of all we achieved on Far Cry and Assassin’s but very excited to build something new,” he said. “Probably won’t have much to announce in the near future as we hire, build our studio, buy a coffee machine and build IKEA furniture but we are hard at work imagining a brand new world to inflict on all of you, so stay tuned.”

Hutchinson previously worked for Electronic Arts and Maxis. Other titles under his belt include The Sims 2, Army of Two: The 40th Day, and The Simpsons Game. He also wrote for several gaming publications including the Official PS2 Magazine.

We wish him the best of luck.
