Veteran Assassin’s Creed art director Raphael Lacoste has announced his departure from Ubisoft in a series of tweets published yesterday. Lacoste has spent over 16 years at Ubisoft across two stints- first from 2002 to 2007, and then returning to the company in 2010.

He worked as art director on eight Assassin’s Creed titles, including the likes of Assassin’s Creed 1, Revelations, Black Flag, Origins, and most recently, Valhalla. Prior to his work on the Assassin’s Creed series, Lacoste also worked in art direction roles on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and The Two Thrones.

In his announcement on Twitter, Lacoste said “it was time to do another leap of faith”. Updates to his Twitter bio and his LinkedIn profile state that he’s joined Haven Studios as Art Director. Haven Studios is currently working on a new PlayStation-exclusive IP, and is led by Jade Raymond, Lacoste’s former Ubisoft collaborator and producer on several Assassin’s Creed games.

A new Assassin’s Creed game, codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity, is currently in early development at Ubisoft, and is being billed as an ongoing live service platform that will grow and expand over time. Read more on that through here.
