Ubisoft Announces Two Brand New Studios – “Unannounced AAA Project” in the Works (VIDEO)

It looks like the Ubisoft presence in Europe is about to get a little bit bigger, according to the publishing company Ubisoft. With big franchises under their belts like Assassin’s Creed and the Far Cry franchise, it’s no wonder that the company is making room for more work to be done. The publisher made the announcement of their expansion plans recently by revealing that two new development studios will be arriving this year, further conquering the European market. Ubisoft announces their newest move with the statement and video below:

We pride ourselves on attracting and retaining the best creative talent around the world, and on establishing video games as a viable career option and economic contributor in new locales.”

The two new locations will be in Berlin, Germany with the second arriving in Bordeaux, France. The Berlin studio will be working alongside Blue Byte (also owned by Ubisoft) on an “unannounced AAA project”. Blue Byte’s recent accomplishments including working with the Montreal studio on Rainbow Six Siege and the controversial For Honor. No word yet if that title is a new Assassin’s Creed game, though the company did make it clear a new one is in the works, though not for its usual annual release.

With studios already occupying Paris, Lyon, Annecy, and Montpellier, Ubisoft wants to capitalize on the “strong pedigree of success” in France by establishing themselves further within Bordeaux. The franchises that are cared for by their French studios include the following, to name a few:

  • Just Dance
  • Steep
  • Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Job openings for these studios can be found here, for any interested. No word what else the new studios will have in store, but with E3 right around the corner, gamers everywhere can be sure that Ubisoft has some tricks up their sleeves with their recent expansion.

What do you think about the recent move? Are you excited to see what Ubisoft has in store? Especially given the greenlight for an Assassin’s Creed television series, it will be interesting to see what the publisher has in mind for the coming years.
