Ubisoft has announced that Jade Raymond has left the company.

Raymond was largely involved with many of Ubisoft’s titles over the past few years. She acted as producer on the original Assassin’s Creed, and was the executive producer of Assassin’s Creed II, Watch Dogs, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

Raymond said of today’s news:

“I’ve spent 10 extraordinary years at Ubisoft, and I am proud to have been part of many of the best teams in the industry making truly remarkable games. This is one of the hardest decisions of my career, but the Toronto studio is strong and on a solid path. I’m confident that now is a good time for me to transition leadership of the studio to Alex and to pursue my other ambitions and new opportunities. Stay tuned for more on what’s next for me, but for now, I’d like to thank Ubisoft for its partnership through the years, and I wish them the very best in all their next endeavours.”

Alexandre Parizeau, a founding team member of the Ubisoft Toronto studio, has taken over Raymond’s role as managing director.

This information comes from Halo franchise development director Frank O’Connor…

That’s not a patch. It’s content. The game is designed to run as a single, unified product, digital is seamless obviously, but we also wanted disc users to have the same experience, without swapping discs. Since the bulk of it is MP or MP related, the logic is sound. There will ALSO be a TU in there, but that in itself is a tiny fraction of the content.

We realize that this isn’t ideal for everyone, but it’s the path to the smoothest eventual experience.

If fixes were required for Campaign, they would be very small, but that’s not the case. All four campaigns will run directly from the disc without the content update. As will some custom game features. Again, the bulk of the CU is MP and MP related.
