Motive Studios is led by Ubisoft’s former Assassin’s Creed producer, Jade Raymond. New official details about Raymond’s new project have been revealed, but according EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen, Raymond and her Studio are working on a Assassin’s Creed-styled, open world action title.

“We’ve never really operated in the largest genre of gaming, and that’s the action genre. 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, 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”, said Jorgensen during the UBS Global Technology Conference.
