Jade Raymond is the head of Ubisoft’s new Toronto studio, and is perhaps best known as the Producer of Assassin’s Creed and Executive Producer of Assassin’s Creed II. Well, maybe Jade’s not best known for Assassin’s in some of the danker corners of game fandom, but hey, thanks to Jade’s incredible team, Assassin’s is the fastest selling original IP in video game in history – the franchise has over 17 million copies and counting and Assassin’s II is widely regarded as one of the best games of 2010. Jade got her start in games at IBM and Microsoft, while she was studying Computer Science at McGill, and took her first full time job in the game industry at Sony Online where she was lead programmer on titles such as Jeopardy! Online and got to start up SOE’s first R&D team. After Sony, Jade was recruited by EA/Maxis to be a Producer on The Sims Online. Jade likes long walks on the beach, unicorns, and poking dead things with a stick.
