The Art Director of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise, Raphael Lacoste, has announced that he is leaving the company.
He made the announcement on Twitter and mentioned that he is leaving the company “to set sails on new adventures and challenges.”
He is among the team of people whom worked on the first Assassin Creed game and after that worked on “8 assassins,” which he revealed on his tweet.
He also revealed on Twitter that he has joined Haven Studio as Art Director, the same studio which is run by his former Ubisoft teammate, Jade Raymond.
In the same tweet, he also revealed the reason why he joined this studio. “Being more hands-on with concept art & working with many of the same core team to build a new original IP is inspiring & exciting”.
Raphael Lacoste is among the latest franchise veterans such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Narrative Director Darby McDevitt and Game Director Eric Baptizat have left Ubisoft in recent months.
