Led by Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond, the studio has developed Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the most recent installment of the Splinter Cell series, in conjunction with Ubisoft Montreal. In November 2011 it was revealed that the studio would be supporting the development of the new Rainbow Six game.[3] PC gamers and PC gaming communities around the world praised them by saying that the PC version was one of the most optimized AAA games recently, while other recently released games from Ubisoft, namely Assassin's Creed III and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, reportedly faced severe performance issues and bugs.
