Assassin’s Creed producer Jade Raymond leaves Ubisoft


Jade Raymond will be leaving Ubisoft. During her 10 years with the video game company, she has worked as a producer on Assassin’s Creed and as an executive producer on Assassin’s Creed II, Watch_Dogs and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist. She also co-found Ubisoft Toronto, the studio responsible for developing Splinter Cell: Blacklist as well as the upcoming Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity. Taking her spot as Ubisoft Toronto managing director will be Alexandre Parizeau, which will start on October 29th.

“I’ve spent 10 extraordinary years at Ubisoft, and I am proud to have been part of many of the best teams in the industry making truly remarkable games,” said Raymond. “This is one of the hardest decisions of my career, but the Toronto studio is strong and on a solid path. I’m confident that now is a good time for me to transition leadership of the studio to Alex and to pursue my other ambitions and new opportunities. Stay tuned for more on what’s next for me, but for now, I’d like to thank Ubisoft for its partnership through the years, and I wish them the very best in all their next endeavors.”

Now Parizeau will report to Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto CEO Yannis Mallat.

“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 Mallat. “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.”

Raymond and Ubisoft have both agreed on the split, allowing her to pursue other opportunities.
