The latest game from Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Désilets is an episodic third-person survival title called Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

As reported by Eurogamer, Désilets announced the game with a brief teaser at the Reboot Develop 2015 conference in Dubrovnik.

"Through each episodes [sic], we want the player to relive the greatest moments of mankind with a documentary twist,” said the former Ubisoft creative director.

“Our civilisation is one idea away from extinction... or evolution. Stay tuned much more to come in 2015!"

Ancestors is in development at Panache Digital Games, a studio Désilets set up after being fired from Ubisoft in 2013 – just seven weeks after rejoining the company.

His studio currently employs about half a dozen staff, and will focus on “short, episodic-ish triple-A games”, said Désilets.

Désilets said he was still fighting Ubisoft for the rights to 1666: Amsterdam, the last game he worked on while at the studio.

"I have nothing against Ubisoft the company," he said. "I have nothing against the people at Ubisoft that are making those amazing games.

“I have a business issue. Without Ubisoft and the huge teams they gave me, I would not be here. I am happy – this is first time I've said it."
