Splinter Cell: Blacklist Director Leaves Ubisoft
Patrick Redding has left his position working at Ubisoft Toronto. He served as game director for Splinter Cell: Blacklist and was listed as game director on an unannounced project at the studio. He’s now taken up a position working at Warner Bros Games Montreal, listed as creative project on an unnamed project there. While there are currently five unannounced projects in the works at Ubisoft Toronto – meaning we don’t know which one he was overseeing – this move to Warner Bros does potentially indicate something big from their studio.
Redding originally joined Ubisoft back in 2004 where he initially worked as a game designed on Far Cry: Instincts at Ubisoft Montreal, and was the narrative designer for both Far Cry: Evolution and Far Cry 2. He later worked as the game director for the co-op portion of Splinter Cell: Conviction prior to taking over as game director for Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Warner Bros Games is best known for the Wii U release of Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition as well as Lego: Legends of Chima Online. While there’s no way of knowing yet exactly what he’ll be working on in his new position, we hope it’ll be something good.
