The recently announced Ubisoft Toronto studio has a new boss, Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond, Ubisoft announced today. She'll be overseeing the new studio, focusing on "AAA games and new intellectual properties."
Raymond will be working under the "governance" of Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft's Montreal and Toronto development studios, at Ubisoft Toronto which is said to be home to some 800 jobs. As of right now, Raymond is toiling away as executive producer on Assassin's Creed II and "other Ubisoft projects" according to the release.
Jade joined Ubisoft's Montreal studio in 2004 as a producer on the original Assassin's Creed, but has kept a lower profile during the development of the sequel while still impressing the powers that be at corporate. We wish the Ubisoft Toronto team best of luck and godspeed to new executive headshots.
