After more than a decade of service, longtime Ubisoft producer Jade Raymond has parted ways with the company, stepping down from her position of Managing Director of Ubisoft Toronto.

Ubisoft has announced that Jade Raymond has left the company to pursue new opportunities in the gaming industry. Over her 10 years of producing and studio overseeing at Ubisoft, she produced the original Assassin's Creed and was executive producer for Assassin's Creed II, Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell Blacklist. Given how close we are to the game's release, we're sure that Raymond played a pivotal role in the production of Assassin's Creed Unity, considering that she was the Managing Director of Ubisoft Toronto, one of the company's main studios working on the project. Raymond has passed the reigns of Managing Director over to Ubisoft Toronto founding member Alexandre Parizeau.

“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."
