Christopher Darby is an employee at Abstergo Entertainment.
In 2013, Darby was involved in an email chain led by Abstergo's Chief Creative Officer Olivier Garneau regarding potential time periods for exploitation via Animus products. Darby raised the possibility of the Irish war for independence as a setting, having had a great grandmother who had worked alongside Éamon de Valera and Michael Collins during that time. He also hinted that an experience involving zombification was not entirely out of the question considering its historical basis in voodoo.
- "Christopher Darby" is the given and middle name of writer Darby McDevitt reversed. Much like the fictional character, McDevitt has also expressed an interest in seeing an Assassin's Creed game set in Ireland.
