Ubisoft Adding Two New Offices for Major Titles


Ubisoft is opening two new studios in Europe to work on some of their "biggest franchises".

According to Ubisoft, both studios will "plug into a global network to work collaboratively with teams around the world".

Ubisoft is expanding its development personnel through opening two new branches located in Berlin, Germany and Bordeaux.

The new studio in Berlin will report to Benedikt Grindel, who serves as studio manager for Ubisoft Blue Byte.

The new studios are coming to Bordeaux and Berlin.

Ubisoft is without a doubt one of the larger developers and publishers out there.

"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".

Ubisoft has been on a roll lately, with big-name titles that proved their worth in 2016: The Division, Rainbow 6 Siege, and Watch Dogs 2. Ubisoft Berlin's partnership with these established and highly-experienced teams will help ensure that the new studio integrates quickly and expands the overall expertise of Ubisoft in Germany. Both will "assist in developing new AAA games for some of Ubisoft's biggest franchises", and the company is expecting to hire at least 50 people per studio in the first year. 2017 proves no different with Ghost Recon: Wildlands and For Honor, despite Ubisoft's controversy with micro-transactions.
