Assassin’s Creed veteran Eric Baptizat has left Ubisoft after sixteen years at the company, and joined EA Motive, the studio behind last year’s Star Wars: Squadrons and the single player campaign of Star Wars Battlefront 2. As spotted by Axios, Baptizat joined Motive in April, and is serving as game director on a currently unannounced project. At Ubisoft, Baptizat was most recently game director on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and before that, also worked on the likes of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.

Baptizat’s arrival in EA Motive is notable not only because of his past work and evident talent, but also because of what he might be working on. Recent rumours have suggested that EA Motive is working on a reimagining of beloved sci-fi survival horror franchise Dead Spacewhich has been on ice for nearly a decade, and though there’s no concrete indication that that’s what Baptizat is working on, it’s certainly within the realms of possibility.

Where Dead Space is concerned, reports suggest that the game is going to be announced at the EA Play Live event on July 22, so we’ll know soon enough what’s going on with those rumours. Stay tuned for more updates.
