The Art Director for Assassin’s Creed is taking on a new leap of faith
He said he decided to “set sails on new adventures and challenges” and explained in another tweet that he would be joining the ranks of Haven Studios, a new independent studio based in Montreal.
He explains that Ubisoft has been “a nice home for 16 years but it’s time to take another leap of faith”.

Who is Raphael Lacoste?
Raphael Lacoste has been the franchise’s art director for almost 10 years and has worked on several Assassin’s Creed games, including the original, Revalations, Black Flag, Origins and Valhalla, as well as the Prince of Persia series.
He has also worked in the film industry as a matte painter and senior concept artist for films like Terminator Salvation, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Death Race, Immortals 2011, Repo Men, and Jupiter Ascending.
He will now be joining Haven Studios as the new Art Director and explains one of the best moments of his career was creating the original Assassin’s Creed due to the hands-on approach he had with the concept art and working in a team.
It seems he will be helping with the new and original IP for PlayStation.
