Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal, Alex Hutchinson, has informed fans that he will be leaving the company after seven years of service. The announcement, made to the public last night through Hutchinson’s Twitter feed, explains that he is excited to begin work on a new chapter of his life:

The Australian-born creative director is most notably known for his work on titles including Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed 3. However, his early career also involved operating as a Lead Designer for publishing giants EA on titles including The Sims 2 and Spore.

Hutchinson has left Ubisoft in order to found Typhoon Studios. Although the new outlet isn’t yet fully functional and their website currently only displays a contact form and hiring page, Hutchinson has addressed this via Twitter stating that the team:

“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”.

From all of us here at Quillstreak we wish Alex Hutchinson and Typhoon Studios all the best for this new exciting chapter they are about to embark upon.
