EA Working On Assassin’s Creed Style Game
EA has revealed that it is working on an open world action game that it has described as being an “Assassin’s Creed style” game and that it will be headed up by Jade Raymond, who worked on Assassin’s Creed while at Ubisoft.
“We’ve never really operated in the largest genre of gaming, and that’s the action genre,” EA’s Blake Jorgensen said. “That’s the Assassin’s Creed-style games; more open-world, more single-play versus multiplayer. It’s not been an area that we’ve operated in.
“We recently hired Jade Raymond,” he continued, “who was behind the Assassin’s Creed franchise for Ubisoft and she will be building an action genre for us through a studio we’re building out in Montreal right now. So a lot of excitement around the action genre.”
When Jorgensen talks about an “Assassin’s Creed style” game, we think he is simply referring to the open world action genre, rather than indicating that EA intends to make a game with parkour set during the Third Crusade, so don’t expect something that similar to Assassin’s Creed.
Raymond is also working on an unannounced Star Wars game with former Naughty Dog developer Amy Hennig.
