The Canadian studio is seeing a major investment which includes an increase in the number of staff and new facilities in the around Quebec's St-Roch district. Additionally, the game studio will be using $4 million of a $28 million investment for a new workspace that is being developed for state-of-the-art AAA development. Likewise, the city of Quebec is contributing $500,000 in financial support.
Ubisoft Quebec has been one of Ubisoft's umbrella companies since the development of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood in 2010 and played a key role in the development of Watch Dogs.
"Since 2010, our understanding of the franchise has increased each year," says Nicolas Rioux, Managing Director of Ubisoft Quebec. "We were involved in Brotherhood. We were involved in Revelations. We were involved in Assassin's Creed 3. With AC 3 we were working on the biggest DLC for the franchise — The Tyranny of King Washington. After that we were also involved with Freedom Cry. We have the confidence of the brand team and also from Ubisoft to take leadership of an upcoming Assassin's Creed title. The team is ready for the next big step."
