North American Ubisoft exec Jay Cohen departs

Publisher Ubisoft recently confirmed that its North American vice-president of publishing, Jay Cohen, has left the company. He might not be among the most recognizable gaming industry luminaries in the nation, though he more or less served as Ubisoft's second-in-command in the Americas, taking responsibility for the company's content acquisitions, partnerships and strategic and financial planning. We sure hope he wasn't the only guy doing the "planning" for Beyond Good & Evil 2.

Nobody's quite sure why Cohen left his prestigious position at the company, or what his future plans regarding employment are, but considering the current state of the nation's expansive, widely accessible job market, it seems the world's totally his oyster.
