Ubisoft Toronto Founder And Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs Producer Jade Raymond Leaves Company After 10 Years
Jade Raymond, producer for the first two Assassin's Creed games and the more recent Watch Dogs, is leaving Ubisoft Toronto, the branch she founded, after 10 years with the French developer, Ubisoft announced today.
With Ubisoft, Raymond has worked with some of the company's most lucrative franchises, like Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell. The studio she created, Ubisoft Toronto, has contributed to a couple of upcoming games headed by Ubisoft Montreal – Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 – and took the lead in the development of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
"On behalf of Ubisoft, I'd like to thank Jade for her leadership and many contributions over the years, and wish her all the best in her next adventures," said Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft Toronto and Montreal, in a press release. "The Toronto studio is a key part of the Ubisoft global network, and Alex has been at the heart of the studio's growth over the years. He was the obvious choice to lead this talented group of people as they continue to develop amazing games."
Parizeau, Raymond's successor, has previously worked as a producer on several Splinter Cell games, including Blacklist, Conviction and Rainbow Six Vegas.
