Google Starts New Stadia Studio with Assassin's Creed Veterans

Montreal’s Stadia Games and Entertainment’s studio is the streaming platform’s first original games studio, established by another former Assassin’s Creed developer, Jade Raymond, who is in charge of Stadia’s first-party games production.

Sébastien Puel has joined the company as director general of the studio. Puel was one of the key figures behind Assassin’s Creed and acted as the franchise’s executive producer for almost ten years, from Assassin’s Creed 2 to 2014’s Unity.

Meanwhile Francois Pelland has been appointed head of production for Google’s first-party game strategy.

Pelland was the exec director of development at Ubisoft Quebec, the studio that created Assassin’s Creed Syndicate under his watch. Pelland was also a senior producer for Assassin’s Creed 3 and exec producer for South Park: The Fractured but Whole.

Finally, veteran artist Mathieu Leduc has joined Google Stadia as an art director. Leduc was in charge of the art direction for the first two Watch Dogs games and was assistant art director for the original Assassin’s Creed.

I for one hope this push to cloud gaming dies the expensive and painful death it deserves.
