Splinter Cell: Blacklist game director, Patrick Redding has left Ubisoft to join Warner Bros. Games in Montreal.

Redding served at Ubisoft as a game designer on Far Cry: Instincts and as the narrative designer for Far Cry before working on Splinter Cell, in 2009.

WB Montreal previously developed Lego: Legends of Chima Online, Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition and, most recently, Batman: Arkham Origins.

So while it is unclear what Redding joined WB to work on, as GamesIndusty note, the move could signify a more ambitious project than any the studio has previously worked on.
