Electronic Arts is currently developing an open-world Assassin's Creed-style game, EA's financial boss Blake Jorgensen has revealed. Speaking at the UBS Global Technology Conference in San Francisco, Jorgesen said that Jade Raymond, producer of the original Assassin's Creed, is working with Electronic Arts' Motive Studios to help the company move on to the action genre.
"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," said Jorgensen.
"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."
