Assassin's Creed Unity, the only Assassin's Creed game that Ubisoft has announced for 2014 so far, is being developed by 10 different Ubisoft subsidiaries around the globe, according to a financial presentation from the publisher.

Ubisoft announced Assassin's Creed Unity in March as the next major entry in the franchise, saying it is in development on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The slide presentation, which Ubisoft posted today alongside the release of its 2013-2014 fiscal report, notes that Ubisoft wants the game's French Revolution setting to be as strong as the colonial-era time period was in 2012's Assassin's Creed 3.

The slide lists Ubisoft Montreal as the lead developer on Assassin's Creed Unity, as well as the nine other internal studios providing assistance: Toronto, Singapore, Quebec, Annecy, Shanghai, Chengdu, Kiev, Montpellier and Bucharest.

Both Ubisoft Annecy and Ubisoft Bucharest have developed multiplayer content for Assassin's Creed titles since a multiplayer component debuted in the franchise with 2010's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Ubisoft Quebec and Ubisoft Singapore have also worked on the series since Brotherhood.
