We're interviewing Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft's Montreal Studio (the developer behind Assassin's Creed, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, Far Cry 2, Shaun White Snowboarding and Prince of Persia) this evening.
If you've got any questions, really, any, that you'd like us to ask Yannis, then pop them in this thread, and we'll see what we can do.

Why bring Leonardo Da Vinci into the game? Of course he was regarded as a genius of his time and excelled in both art and invention, but using someone as Da Vinci to create weapons and improving them. Would it not cause a uproar outside the gaming industry because you are using this history icon to create killing tools for Assassin? Did you have other ideas before putting Leonardo Da Vinci into the equation?
Hope any of that is suitable for your interview Wes. You can bitesize it down if you wish or just use a little bit from it. I don't mind

1)Knowing that the one major complaint from gamers over Assassin's Creed was the lack of excitement as you got further in to the game, how is Assassin's Creed II going to improve on the first game?
2) Is the Rainbow Six franchise going to be revisiting the style of the earlier games on consoles again or will the Vegas games get a sequel themselves first?

Are you planning Assassin's Creed as a trilogy, or do you forsee yourselves opening up the history books and exploring many more periods?
How did Ubisoft's love affair with Tom Clancy start? And will it be continuing into the distant future?
Prince of Persia was oh so beautiful, but oh so dull. Will Prince of Persia 2 have more monsters for us to fight and puzzles for us to solve?
Why don't Ubisoft do a game based in Quebec? I've been to both Quebec [the city] and Montreal and they are both wonderful cities. Seeing as they are based in the French-Candian province could we have a "Rainbow Six: Montreal" maybe?

Would Ubisoft ever consider making any of the games that the forum users came up with for the 40th episode of the podcast?
If needed I'll give them my ideas free of charge.

Is there any particular favorite time period that you would really like to see an Assassins Creed game set within?

As AC2 is a highly anticipated game, would Ubisoft ever consider charging more for like Activision are doing with MW2?
