Sony knew Jade Raymond earlier this year to connect For a new studio in Montreal. If we are to believe the speculation, the lady behind games like Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell is bringing an online service game to PlayStation 5.
Italian site Multiplayer It apparently revealed some recruiting data indicating that Jade Raymond and her team will be working on an online game for PlayStation 5 as Sony’s first game (think Destiny, Apex Legends, and other similar games).
According to Linkedin, Haven was hiring and apparently brought in a roster of veterans from the Montreal Development Group. Notable names include Sebastian Paul, former Assassin’s Creed series producer, main Assassin’s Creed writer Cory May, Watch Dogs art director Matthew Leduc, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider game director Daniel Drapeau.
Jade Raymond has worked at Ubisoft, EA, and Google Stadia in the past, but hasn’t really worked out in the latter two. This was due to the fact that at some point both parties decided to cancel the projects that she was working on.
It remains unclear how the team at Haven will focus on games-as-a-service, but the team has already begun to take shape in earnest.
“We want to put our passion into a project. We want to create something cool for people to experience. Because we believe in the power of games to bring joy to people’s lives. And Sony too”, Raymond wrote in a blog when she announced her move to Haven. “Their commitment to excellence is unparalleled. That’s why I couldn’t be happier with their support and support.”
“While we don’t have many details to announce today, I want the PlayStation community to know that Haven Studios is already working hard on an undisclosed IP. We can’t wait to show you more!”
