Jade Raymond to lead Ubisoft Toronto

Jade Raymond, producer of Assassin's Creed, will head up Ubisoft Toronto.

The highly visible producer of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed games, Jade Raymond, has been chosen to head up its new Toronto studio.

The announcement came on Monday, months after the developer had announced the founding of the studio back in July. Raymond will answer to Yannis Mallat, CEO of both Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto, and she will be in charge of the day-to-day operations of the studio.

Raymond has been with Ubisoft Montreal since 2004,  where she was one of the producers on Assassin’s Creed. The popular third-person action game sold eight million units, according to Ubisoft.

She is currently the executive producer of Assassin’s Creed 2 and other projects by the developer. Raymond previously worked with IBM, Electronic Arts, and Sony Online.

"I’m excited to have Jade managing our Toronto studio," said Mallat in a statement. "With more than 12 years of experience in the video game industry, Jade’s knowledge and leadership as an industry veteran are major assets in building the Toronto studio and expanding Ubisoft’s presence in Canada." 

According to Ubisoft, the Toronto studio will be responisible in helping build bridges between video games and other media such as books, comics, short films, and more.
