Igor Manceau Named Ubisoft’s Chief Creative Officer
Ubisoft has appointed Igor Manceau as its new Chief Creative Officer (CCO). Manceau will report to Ubisoft CEO and Co-Founder Yves Guillemot and will serve as a member of Ubisoft’s Executive Committee.
As CCO, Manceau will be responsible for defining and nurturing Ubisoft’s overall creative vision, and for guiding the creative direction of its games so that they are accessible and enriching for all players. In addition to Ubisoft’s creative teams, Manceau will work closely with Chief Studios Operating Officer Virginie Haas, Chief Portfolio Officer Sandrine Caloiaro, and their respective groups to organically grow Ubisoft’s franchises and identify opportunities to create new titles that can succeed in new or emerging game genres.
Manceau joined Ubisoft Annecy in 2014 to take on the creative direction of Steep, an award-winning extreme sports game that developed a dedicated community of social players.
“It is a real honor for me to lead and support the passionate and incredibly talented group of people responsible for the creative direction of Ubisoft’s games,” said Manceau.
He has a deep understanding of players’ motivations, a strong intuition for reaching new markets, and an exemplary leadership style. I’m confident Igor will partner closely with our deep pool of talented creative directors and editorial leads to align and motivate our teams around a shared vision that strengthens and expands the breadth of Ubisoft’s portfolio of games, helping us to delight current players and appeal to new ones.
