Assassin’s Creed creator Jade Raymond announces Haven Studios, set to produce new IP for Playstation
Former Assassin’s Creed creator Jade Raymond is back to producing new games with the establishment of the new Haven Studios with the goal of making new IP.
The Canadian game producer launched the new studio which is also backed by Sony to create more games.
Haven will be based in Montreal, Canada, and as Raymond explains, the goal is to “build a studio that is a haven for developers.” It’s unclear what the new IP will be, but we do know it’s being funded by Sony, serving as a second-party title.
This news comes by way of a PlayStation Blogpost from Raymond, in which she goes through some of her history in the games industry leading up to leaving the Google Stadia team.
“It’s been a strange and difficult past 12 months,” Raymond said. “The pandemic, social injustice, and job elimination have impacted many of my closest friends, family, and co-workers. All of these factors, paired with an inability to see friends and family face-to-face, lulled me into a kind of self-reflective cocoon where I had to ask myself some tough questions about what really matters.”
So excited to announce Haven Studios! https://t.co/dDJKKA7ZrY

I am curious as to what they are developing. Hopefully it would be as good as what she did with Ubisoft years ago for Assassin’s Creed.
