Ubisoft Announces New Studio And Job Opportunities With $780 Million Expansion

Ubisoft announced today that they are planning a $780 million dollar expansion.

The legendary Montreal based games studio recently announced that they are planning on opening a new studio in Quebec.  The new studio promises to potentially give Canadians 1,000 new job opportunities within the province by 2027.

Ubisoft’s upcoming venture will help realize a new studio in Saguenay, Quebec. The forthcoming studio promises to bring with it a better focus towards connected experiences and opportunities for players to engage in more online focused titles from the renowned games company.

The announcement of the upcoming expansion was revealed through the company’s official Twitter, earlier today. Yannis Mallet, the CEO of Ubisoft Montreal, Quebec, and Toronto had this to say on the matter:

“We are entrusting Ubisoft Saguenay with a mandate that is resolutely focused on the future, the development of connected experiences that allow millions of players to meet and interact on online game platforms is a leading growth and innovation driver not only for Ubisoft but for the entire video game industry as a whole.”

Canadian readers or those willing to travel might be interested in knowing that Ubisoft has already put up job listings for work at the upcoming Saguenay branch.

The new Saquenay office will be a part a larger $780 million dollar expansion, with the Canadian province investing $160 million towards the new studio. Additionally, Ubisoft aims to create 200 new jobs for Quebec City in addition to 675 jobs for Montreal, with plans for another studio elsewhere in Quebec.

Ubisoft Montreal is one of the larger studios within the games company and has been responsible for many AAA titles including the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the Far Cry franchise, both the Watch Dogs titles, and For Honor.

Currently, the most anticipated title being worked on by the Montreal based studio, would have to be the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed: Origins. A title in which players will be able to step back in time and visit the Great Pyramids while uncovering the mysteries surrounding the birth of both the Templars and Brotherhood of Assassins.
