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.
As spotted by Axios, Baptizat joined Motive in April, and is serving as game director on a currently unannounced project.
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.
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.
