Jade Raymond, the former head of Ubisoft Toronto, has announced her latest gig. She will be heading up a new EA-owned developer called Motive Studio.
In her announcement about Motive's founding, Raymond said that the Motive will be based out of Montreal. They'll be collaborating with BioWare, which also has a studio in the city:
The studio will also be working on the new Star Wars game now in production at Dead Space developer Visceral Games. Raymond says that she'll be overseeing Visceral in addition to Motive. The Star Wars project is led by Amy Hennig, previously the creative director for the Uncharted series.
Visceral has yet to announce any details on their Star Wars project. They seem to be hinting that the game involves Han Solo and pirates, though. Voice actor Nolan North said at a recent panel discussion that it's "a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted."
This is actually the second time Raymond has worked for EA. In 2002, she was a producer for The Sims Online. She later joined Ubisoft Montreal to serve as producer for the first two Assassin's Creed games and Watch Dogs. Ubisoft named her head of their new Toronto studio in 2010. While there, she was executive producer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
She closed her announcement with a call for resumes. If you're interested in joining Motive Studio, you should send an email to JoinMotive@ea.com.
