Jade Raymond quits Ubisoft, though plans to stay in the video game industry

After 10 years at Ubisoft, working on titles such as Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Jade Raymond has left the company.

Her latest role was as Managing Director at Ubisoft Toronto, though she has also worked as Producer and Executive producer on numerous popular titles, including the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Jade will be staying in the gaming industry, though hasn’t revealed where she’ll be moving too. She will be replaced by Alexandre Parizeau, a founding member of the studio. Parizeau has worked as producer on titles such as Rainbow Six Vegas and Splinter Cell Conviction.

“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," Raymond said in a press release. "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."

Ubisoft issued the following statement:

"On behalf of Ubisoft, I’d like to thank Jade for her leadership and many contributions over the years, and wish her all the best in her next adventures. The Toronto studio is a key part of the Ubisoft global network, and Alex has been at the heart of the studio’s growth over the years. He was the obvious choice to lead this talented group of people as they continue to develop amazing games."
