The former executive producer of Assassin’s Creed, Jade Raymond, is still passing through and is devoting herself to a new PlayStation IP in the future.
Google had big plans for the game streaming service Stadia and was also planning exclusive first-party titles. Jade Raymond, who is extremely well-known in the industry, should also help here, after all she once worked as an executive producer at Ubisoft and was responsible for Assassin’s Creed in this position. The end of the story is known: Google stopped the in-house Stadia developments and Raymond was now looking for work again.
As a decorated developer, she didn’t have to look far, because from now on she’s at Sony PlayStation, as has now been confirmed via PlayStation Blog. Raymond has now founded the new development studio Haven Entertainment Studios, which belongs to the PlayStation family and is consequently also working on a completely new IP for the PS5.
Commenting on Haven’s creation, Raymond said, “Today I’d like to introduce you to Haven, an independent studio where many of the talented game developers I’ve worked with for years (and who I really appreciate) do what we all love most. The time has come to focus on GAMES again in a place where we can practice our profession without any obstacles or restrictions. “
And further: “We want to create worlds in which the players can escape. Places where they can have fun, exchange ideas and meet like-minded people. We want to put all our passion into a project. We want to create a great experience for the players . Because we believe in the power of games and that they enrich people’s lives. And Sony believes in that. The company always strives for its best. That’s why I’m so delighted with the backing and support from Sony. Together we want to develop games that are an oasis for gamers and at the same time build a studio that is a paradise for game developers. “
Further details could not yet be announced, but the work on the new PlayStation IP had been “intensively” advanced.
