The official Twitter account of the saga has not missed the opportunity to say goodbye with a thank you: “Thank you, Darby Mc Devitt, for his immense contribution to the brand. The stories and characters you have created will always be loved by the Assassin’s Creed community. May the winds be favorable for you on your next trip ”.
