The producer on the original Assassin’s Creed and its sequel has joined EA to oversee Visceral Games and their Star Wars title.
Jade Raymond has joined EA and formed Motive Studios. She’ll be working with EA Visceral on their untitled Star Wars game as well as working with Bioware:
“Motive will be a creative-driven team, incubating entirely new IP and taking on some amazing projects. The first one is going to be really exciting â€“ weâ€™re going to work on Amy Hennigâ€™s Star Wars game!
In addition to building the new Motive Studio in Montreal, I will also oversee the Visceral studio in California. I’m a huge fan of the games that have come out of Visceral and I feel honoured to be working with such a talented team led by studio GM Scott Probst. I’ve also known Amy for years and have admired her work on the Uncharted games! Iâ€™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.”
Right now it’s not exactly clear exactly what Motive will be doing with BioWare and Visceral, but Jade Raymond is a major name to have overseeing these games. Hopefully we’ll get a peek at Visceral’s Star Wars game soon.
