Rumors that Eric Baptizat – a 16-year-old Ubisoft veteran who left the corporate earlier this 12 months to affix EA Motive – was engaged on the Useless Area remake have been confirmed. It is proper on Baptizat’s LinkedIn profile: “Game Director on Dead Space”.
Beforehand, Baptizat was Sport Director at Murderer’s Creed Valhalla and Senior Sport Designer at Black Flag, Unity and Origins.
