In Gaming, News by Xardas0 Comments

Ubisoft announced today that it is expanding even further across Europe by opening two new development studios. The studios will be located in Bordeaux, France and Berlin, Germany and will assist other teams around the world in creating new titles for well-established franchises. According to a new post on the Ubisoft blog, both studios will be focused on developing multiplatform AAA releases when they open their doors later this year.

“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,” said Christine Burgess-Quémard, executive director of Ubisoft’s worldwide studios. At the same time, the company is also looking “to offer more opportunities to skilled graduates and industry veterans in those regions.”

The Bordeaux team will be part of the fifth French studio owned by Ubisoft and will work on franchises like Just Dance, Steep, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Meanwhile, the Berlin studio’s first project is scheduled to be an unannounced AAA title developed in collaboration with Ubisoft Blue Byte. The company is best known for strategy games like Battle Isle, The Settlers, and Anno. More recently, however, the studio also helped Ubisoft Montreal develop a couple of high-profile titles like Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor.
