Former Assassin's Creed producer and EA Motive founder Jade Raymond has announced she's heading up Google's newly-unveiled Stadia Games and Entertainment studio.

Raymond appeared on stage yesterday during Google's GDC press conference, where she said the first-party studio is out to 'reimagine the new generation of games' as well as 'working with external developers to make all of the bleeding-edge Google technology you’ve seen today available to partner studios big and small.'

Google's in-house development outfit will house multiple studios, said Raymond, and will work alongside external companies to secure their projects for Stadia. No titles were mentioned at this point, however.

Raymond's move to Google was confirmed only last week, and comes following her departure from EA Motive in October of last year.

Stadia is due for release in various territories later this year.
