Assassin's Creed-style action game currently in development at EA

What makes this interesting is the fact Jade Raymond, best known for her work on the Assassin's Creed series, will be working on the game.

EA CFO Blake Jorgensen has revealed the company is currently developing an Assassin’s Creed-style action game with the help of ex-Assassin’s Creed producer, Jade Raymond.

Jorgensen revealed the upcoming title during a talk at the UBS Global Technology Conference in San Francisco. "We've never really operated in the largest genre of gaming, and that's the action genre," 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.”

Jorgensen then revealed the purpose behind Raymond’s hiring several months ago. “We recently hired Jade Raymond, 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."

The new studio Jorgensen referenced in his talk was Motive Studios, which Raymond is heading. Raymond is also working with Visceral Games for its upcoming Star Wars game, so if you’re a fan of her previous work, then you’re going to want to keep a close eye on EA in the coming months to see what she's cooked up.
