Ubisoft Sets Up Shop in Quebec

Recently, Ubisoft opened a new studio in Quebec City. This new development wing will employ 200 designers, animators and programmers and is part of the recently announced project to create 1000 new jobs by 2010 in Quebec. As part of this endeavor, Ubisoft will invest 75 million Canadian dollars over the next five years.

"Our expected growth in the five coming years will now come from both Montreal, as announced last February, and Quebec City," said Martin Tremblay, President and COO of Ubisoft's Montreal studios. ''Quebec City is a recognized creative hub and well-known for its academic institutions both at the university and college level. Ubisoft intends to play a key role in the development of the local industry and be a major contributor to Quebec City's international renown."

"Quebec and its surrounding areas are filled with talent," continued Tremblay. "This has been a well-kept secret for too long. We are convinced that the region's young creatives have a lot to offer Ubisoft. In return, we believe that our company can offer some very interesting career opportunities in a growing and dynamic sector of the digital entertainment industry."

The future of GR?

Expansion plans

Looking ahead, Ubisoft said it plans to expand its production workforce to 2,900 people by adding 600 new employees by March 31, 2006. Over the next couple of years, the company expects to see "two-digit organic growth" by aggressively pursuing the film license segment, the sports segment, and development on next-generation platforms. Ubisoft currently has plans to launch 7 new titles for the Nintendo DS, 5 for the PSP and 4 for the next-gen Xbox. No mention of the PlayStation 3 or Nintendo Revolution was made.

No aggressive pursuit of the GR franchise then? :angry:
