  • Damien KiekenGame DirectorUbisoft

    Damien graduated with honors from the French school "Institut International du Multimedia" (technical and managerial education in project management). He started working in the video game industry in 2004 as a game and level designer, then as project manager and post-launch team manager in game studios focused on online, multiplayer experiences. Damien joined the editorial team of Ubisoft in 2010, as a game content manager and multiplayer specialist. He worked on several AAA multiplayer console games, then helped the team in Annecy to ship Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. After this intense experience, Damien joined the Annecy studio as the game director, to continue to define the vision and shape future installments. On the past three Assassin's Creed games, Damien was responsible for the overall vision of the multiplayer aspect and its communication, which included management and strategic decision making. Damien also played a large part in defining and prioritizing the core features of the games. He validates the work being done by the development team, and pushes them to produce the best possible experience, all while maintaining the quality and continuity of the AC franchise. Damien recently moved to Ubisoft Montreal to work on an unannounced project as game director.
