Assassin's Creed: Revelations creative director Alexandre Amancio leaves Ubisoft

Alexandre Amancio has left Ubisoft in order to serve as Chief Creative Officer for Cossette, a marketing company located in Quebec City, Canada. Amancio leaves the developer seven years after joining in 2005. He was most recently credited as the creative director for Assassin's Creed: Revelations and also served as art director for Far Cry 2. This marks the second time in as many years that the Assassin's Creed series' Creative Director has left Ubisoft Montreal, following Patrice Désilets' resignation in 2010.

"Video games and advertising have many common elements," Amancio said in a press release issued by Cossette. "In both industries, we are always looking for new ways to engage the consumer to the brand." Sounds to us like Amancio will be right at home in the warm bosom of a marketing agency. We give it two years before Ezio is slammin' back 5-Hour Energy shots between trips to Wells-Fargo and 24-Hour Fitness.
