Ubisoft Toronoto studio managing director Jade Raymond states that while the next generation of consoles is exciting, she is convinced that innovation isn’t bound by technology alone.

Speaking to MCV, she stated that, “As a gamer and developer I’m very excited about the promise of Next Gen. That being said, innovation is not necessarily driven by teraflops alone.

“In my opinion, many of the most exciting new concepts lately have been driven out of the indie scene and have come to life on less powerful platforms.

“With Splinter Cell Blacklist, not only do I think that the team is delivering the best stealth experience of this generation, I also think that we are delivering a completely new multiplayer experience. Hopefully unique gameplay is still something that can make a game stand out.”

Currently, Ubisoft Toronto is working with Ubisoft Montreal on the next Assassin’s Creed after Black Flag, with five more titles in production after Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
