EA, Assassin’s Creed’s Jade Raymond Joins Google As New VP

Google is ranking up its staff in order to have a smooth and successful entry in the world of gaming, which is happening on March 19.

After Phil Harrison, former executive at PlayStation and Xbox, a new exec has just joined the company and is a very popular name in gaming.

That exec is Jade Raymond, among the creators of the Assassin’s Creed franchise and former studio head at EA Motive.

“I’m excited to finally be able to share that I have joined Google as VP!,” she just announced on her Twitter account.

Raymond got her start in the game industry as a programmer for Sony, as reported by Variety.

She went on to work at Electronic Arts, then as a correspondent for The Electric Playground, and finally Ubisoft Montreal, where she was the producer of Assassin’s Creed.

She went on to serve as the executive producer of Assassin’s Creed 2, Watch Dogs and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

She helped open the Ubisoft Toronto Studio and served as its managing director, helping to expand the studio.

Considering Raymond’s a person who’s worked concretely on games, it’ll be interesting to see what her contribution to Google’s cause will be in the short and mid term future.
