Former BioWare developer Mike Laidlaw has been hired by Ubisoft Quebec as the Creative Director for an as-yet unannounced project. Laidlaw was most well-known for his work on the Dragon Age series of games while at BioWare and most recently has been a consultant on The Waylanders RPG. Could Laidlaw be working on the next iteration of Assassin's Creed now that the series has made a turn to full-blown RPG? We wouldn't mind!
I always knew I'd go back to triple-A at some point, once I found the right team and project.— Mike Laidlaw (@Mike_Laidlaw) December 5, 2018
Spoiler: I did at Ubisoft Quebec and I'm so damn excited to finally talk about it!https://t.co/41sPcyfUsZ
In my months working with the team here, I’ve been really impressed with the combination of passion and raw talent in the studio. If you’ve played the excellent Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – which was principally developed here in Quebec City – you already have some taste of what that combination can produce.
Alas, I can’t discuss exactly what I’m doing, but I will say it’s exciting enough to make me move half way across the continent.
