Ubisoft wants to expand its presence in Europe and the company has recently announced that it will open two new video game development studios in Bordeaux (France) and Berlin (Germany). These studios will focus on the development of AAA video games in a multiplatform format. Both centers of Ubisoft will have a workforce of at least 100 employees, which will increase until they complete their first year of operation.
Ubisoft opens two new studios in Bordeaux and Berlin
Ubisoft Bordeaux will focus on supporting the other studios the company has in France, collaborating with the centers of Annecy, Lyon, Montpellier and Paris, who have been in charge in recent years to develop titles such as Just Dance, Steep or the most recent of them, the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. On the other hand, Ubisoft Berlin will collaborate with other teams of Blue Byte, who have created titles like Anno and The Settlers.
Ubisoft talked about opening new studios in France and Germany:
The new studios demonstrate Ubisoft’s commitment to developing enriching, immersive game worlds and world-class entertainment franchises. They will plug into Ubisoft’s cross-studio collaboration approach, in which Ubisoft studios from across the globe work together on AAA game development, with each studio providing distinct contributions based on their areas of expertise. With four established studios in France and two in Germany, Ubisoft already has a strong presence in the two countries’ video game ecosystems. By opening these two new studios, Ubisoft is creating additional opportunities for local talent and adding to the expertise of its respective local teams.
