Jade Raymond: I’m executive producer on Assassin’s Creed II

Update: There’s an interview with Raymond and ACII producer Patrice Desilets on Ubisoft’s official E3 site.

Right. What? Jade Raymond’s told the Official PlayStation Magazine in Benelux at E3 this week that she’s been in charge of Assassin’s Creed II development from the start.

“I’m taking a step back from all the press and stuff this time,” she said. “I’m executive producer. Got to let the new producer shine. I had my spotlight on Assassin’s Creed 1.

“I’m very much involved with the team from day one.”

The developer became something of an internet “pin-up” during the first game’s launch build-up.

Raymond has been hidden away since the release of Assassin’s Creed, with Ubi sources constantly telling press they had no idea what she was working on.

Looks like we all know now.

    Didn’t they feel as if they got enough press or what? How about making a non pre-rendered trailer?

    I’m never bored. :-D

    Tonka, there was a whole bunch of in-game stuff at the Sony conference. You can watch it on GameTrailers.

    Not actually that funny but well drawn. Ubi dropped a brick when they saw it I seem to remember.

    I feel sorry for the devs involved in the first that the Jade thing got so much exposure…the Jade thing being that shes not some mutant.

    she is purty though :)

    She’s a bit too thin by all accounts. It would be like sticking your dick into a sock full of spanners, innit.

    I would take her out for lunch, tell her how much I liked her game and apologise profusely for the behaviour of forumites the world over.

    Oh, please, every single male among you not gay would be all over her given the opportunity.

    Anyway, I personally thought that the enemy in A.I. in part one was of PS1 quality and so that turned me off—hopefully it will be better this time around so that I can actually enjoy the hype.

    And, like that, the press and gamers will give AC2 ten times the coverage it would have got if a pretty lady hadn’t been attached to it in some way.

    And then gamesplayers wonder why people people regard them as immature and reactionary?

    @Blerk in other words a few pints in the local, some crisps and a quickie in the alleyway.

    Oh the hypocrisy!! The same idiots who complain about Itagaki’s objectification of women are now objectifying the producer. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if she avoided all hardcore media outlets such as this due to how few here want to talk about what aspects of the game she influenced and how many just want to gawk over a pretty lady when there are so many other ladies on other sites they could gawk at.

    Just because the girl is smart and beauitful doen’t mean she is not a really great game dev. It really goes to show how sad some males are.

    That comic stripis pretty sad, must be some guy who is inscure that a beautiful game dev is taking his job.

    I guess some guys just do not know how to treat, talk and handle beautiful women.

  33. blackdreamhunk

    @Psychotexd

    the question is can she handle a guy like me, I’m picky. I’m into certen type of girls. just because a girl is beatiful doesn’t mean she can get me in the sack that easy.

    Girls with history is more of a turn too.

    jeez i’m an ass, and every other bad word i can think of but i’m all that in private, not like this. the guy who drew is a f loser and i kind of feel sorry for him. other than that, what blackdreamhunk said.

    and blerk we all know you’re a gentleman. gd to know that there still at least one left. :)

    #36 6 years ago
  37. G1GAHURTZ

    #37 6 years ago
  38. blackdreamhunk

    in all honesty must of the girls I have dated hate computers. My last girl firend hated my pc and would call my pc the other women.

    Oh one more thing just because i have dated a ton of beatiful girls doesn’t I sleep with them.

    I think we should all create a daft alter-ego and then sit and wait for some poor sap to stumble across the site.
