Ubisoft Toronto developers have started collaborating with Ubisoft Montreal on the next, next Assassin's Creed game, the title that will be released following recently announced Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, studio managing director Jade Raymond told Polygon.
With their work on the multiplayer maps for Rainbow Six: Patriots complete and work nearing an end for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Raymond discussed some of what the team is doing in terms of future work.
In all, the studio has charted out five titles that they will be working on once they ship Blacklist.
"We have two big collaborations coming that we're not talking about, on two of the biggest franchises at Ubisoft," Raymond said. "We also have two new IP."
The fifth will be within the Splinter Cell brand, she said.
The news highlights the studio's shift from a single-game studio, to one that plans on vastly expanding their outlook.
While Raymond declined to talk specifics about the new game, she did say she was excited to get back to work on a franchise that she helped launch.
"The thing that's great to me is that there is still some of my favorite people who, you know, we were in the trenches shipping that first one," she said. "We lived through all of that stuff together and some of those guys are still on the franchise and have been there. So it's a just for me to work with some of those people again."
