"Contrary to any statements made earlier today, this morning I was terminated by Ubisoft," Desilets told Polygon. "I was notified of this termination in person, handed a termination notice and was unceremoniously escorted out of the building by two guards without being able to say goodbye to my team or collect my personal belongings.
"This was not my decision."
"Ubisoft's actions are baseless and without merit. I intend to fight Ubisoft vigorously for my rights, for my team and for my game."
In their statement to press earlier in the day, Ubisoft officials said that the company and Desilets parted ways after "good faith discussions."
Game Informer says the two games they inherited from THQ, 1666 and Underdog, were cancelled. Ubisoft released a PRSpeak statement in response, which obviously doesn't actually say anything.
