Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Watch Dogs producer quits Ubisoft

Ubisoft announced earlier that Jade Raymond is leaving the company after 10 years. Raymond is currently the founder and managing director of Ubisoft Toronto.


Raymond helped establish the Assassin’s Creed franchise and was the producer on the original game all the way back in 2007.
We still don’t have a reason for her departure and although she hasn’t stated if she’s staying within the gaming industry her comments seem to point that way.
Alexandre Parizeau will take over her role as the head of Ubisoft Toronto, after serving as managing director since 2009; he was also senior producer on Splinter Cell Blacklist, and producer on Splinter Cell Conviction and Rainbow Six Vegas. Raymond hands over her reins 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,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 endeavours.’ – Jade Raymond
