Maxime Durand

Historic Researcher
Days after graduating in History from his hometown Université de Montréal in 2010, Maxime moved in directly at Ubisoft to work as the Assassin’s Creed franchise historian.
Making his grand debut with Assassin’s Creed III, he has collaborated on most games and projects of the brand ever since.
His main interest is to give fans of the franchise the best historic immersion through all game aspects.
In February 2018 and after years of development, Maxime participated in the launch of the new educational project, Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt.  Tailored to be accessible for all, this unique experience allows visitors to explore Egypt at the time of Cleopatra and to learn about its rich culture and history.
