If you’ve completed a Ubisoft game within the past few years, you’ve had the displeasure of sitting through one of their credits rolls. No offense to the people there, since they’ve done some fine work on some fine games, but there are just a lot of them. So many names. So many regional studios. So what’s a couple more?
Hopefully a few future hits will join our list of upcoming PC games.
Ubisoft are opening a new studio in Saguenay, Quebec, Canada, which is expected to grow to 125 employees in the next five years. They’ll also be opening another new Quebec studio within the next decade, in addition to expanding their Quebec City and Montreal studios over the same time frame. Altogether, they’re expecting to create 1,000 new jobs in Quebec by 2027, expanding their workforce in the province to 4,600.
Quebec has proven to be a hotbed of game development, with the city of Montreal in particular serving as home to major studios for publishers like Ubisoft, EA, and Square Enix. The province hosts over 10,000 game developers, and Ubisoft provide no small part of that number. The French megapublisher also invests significantly in local education, and those investments are grow to expand alongside this expansion.
