Jade Raymond to head up Ubisoft Toronto, focusing on AAA games and new IPs

While the whereabouts of Beyond Good & Evil 2's Jade are still – frustratingly – unknown, the whereabouts of Ubisoft's other Jade – that would be Jade Raymond, of Assassin's Creed fame – are quite known. Though she's been somewhat out of the limelight after initially trumpeting up the still-not-out-yet I Am Alive, Ms. Raymond is still alive and has been chosen as the head of the recently announced Ubisoft Toronto.

But hey, we know you're worried about Yannis Mallat, CEO of both Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto, who told us last month that he would be "handling both" studios. Well, don't fret – Ubisoft's press release says that while "Raymond will oversee day-to-day operations of the Toronto studio's work on video game project," she will do so "under the governance of Yannis Mallat." Ubisoft Toronto is scheduled to open its doors by the end of the year and begin "work on AAA games and new intellectual properties," according to Raymond.
