Jade Raymond Appointed as New Head of Ubisoft Toronto


It’s been announced that Jade Raymond will take over the newly formed Ubisoft Toronto studio as it’s new head.

We personally thought it was a joke at first, but it is true.

Raymond will answer from the studio through to Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat, as she handles the studio on a day to day basis.

“I’m excited to have Jade managing our Toronto studio. 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,” said Mallat.

Raymond chipped in too, stating: “I’m honored to be a part of Ubisoft’s expansion into Toronto. I’m looking forward to building a strong and talented team to work on triple-A games and new intellectual properties.”

But now that she’s taken the role, what of that as to her role as executive producer to Assassins Creed II, alongside creative director Patrice Desilets? We’ve left an email with Ubi as to what the situation is.
