Ubisoft Creates Epic Job title

The games industry isn't like other industries. It likes to think it's as young as it consumers and they like to reflect that in strange ways, such as the hiring of Michael "Frosti" Zernow

Michael "Frosti" Zernow has joined Ubisoft's team his function should be obvious once you hear his title. Drum roll please.... Chief Parkour Officer.

Yeah that's what it will say on his pay check. Zernow's no stranger to video games, having done motion capture for various titles in the past  "I've been a long-time fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise," he said. "It's one of the few highly visible examples of parkour that attracts younger athletes to the sport every year."

Evidently Zernow is the one responsible for the shake up of Assassin Creed Unity's parkour as can be seen in this new trailer

Abe's Take
i suspect we'll start seeing more job titles like this now. However I would like to bring up that trailer for a sec. Assuming that is Arno (ACU's player character) he sounds awfully English for a Frenchmen, this wouldn't be the first time this has happened Patrick Steward played a Frenchmen for 20+ years with his classically trained English accent on display. I suspect this will follow Next Gen's technique of all the "French good Guys" will have English accents whilst the "Bad Men" and women will have French accents
