Jade Raymond, co-creator of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, has finally found her new venture after departing Ubisoft in October of 2014.

Raymond has opened a new studio under the EA umbrella called EA Motive. This studio will work with Visceral on the currently in development Star Wars title that is being lead by former Uncharted director Amy Hennig.

“I’ve known Amy for years and have admired her work on the Uncharted games! I’m thrilled that the first big project that we will work on in Montreal will have Amy as Creative Director.

An opportunity to work with her and the Visceral team, and to play in the Star Wars universe, is once-in-a-lifetime stuff.”

Raymond also hintend that they may be working closely with the Bioware Montreal team on Mass Effect: Andromeda.

“Yanick Roy and the BioWare Montreal team are doing some new and exciting things with Mass Effect: Andromeda and it’s clear that there is already so much talent to collaborate with on site.”


While it may seem like EA Motive’s key task is to assist other studios with current projects, Raymond also has some ideas for brand new IPs that could begin development after the other projects are off of her plate.
