Gaming industry veteran, Jade Raymond has recently announced that she’s joined Google as a VP.
Raymond first started at Sony as a programmer, then EA and then a part-time correspondent of Electronic Playground. She then moved to Ubisoft Montreal where she helped create the Assassin’s Creed series and was executive producer on Assassin’s Creed II, Watch Dogs and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
In 2010, Raymond opened Ubisoft Toronto and served as the studio’s managing director. In 2015, she left Ubisoft to join EA and found Montreal-based Motive Studios but left in late 2018.
Raymond didn’t which department she would be in charge of but this announcement just comes after Google announced their teaser for GDC 2019 (Game Developers Conference), which will happen on March 19th.
Google has been rumored to be working on a game streaming service that would use their previously announced Project Stream.
We’ll find out more in the coming weeks.
