Ubisoft recently took us to Paris to take a look at Assassin’s Creed Unity – in this interview we talk to Lesley Phord-Toy, one of the producers.


Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.

Lesley is a producer at Ubisoft Toronto working on Assassin’s Creed Unity with 12 years of experience in the video game industry.

An engineering graduate from the University of Waterloo, Lesley started her career in R&D developing visual effects software at Sony Electronics in Los Angeles. By 2002, Lesley decided to follow her passion for videogames and moved back to Canada to join the game industry. Since then, she has played key roles in creating and shipping a wide variety of titles ranging from family-friendly games, to AAA blockbusters, most recently helping deliver the critically-acclaimed Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist.

So over to Lesley, and there’s some new Xbox One gameplay in there too:

Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released November 13th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
