The developers of Japanese role-playing game-inspired Child of Light are now one of the core teams installed at Ubisoft Montreal, according to CVG.

The team is reportedly working on a new project. Studio vice president of creative Lionel Raynaud told CVG that Ubisoft Montreal will make more titles similar to Child of Light moving forward. He said he is "super happy" with the final game and its reception, and noted that there are already several new studio projects at the pitching stage.

"The team learned a lot about RPG mechanics during development and this has resulted in us creating a core team," Raynaud said. "The people who made this game now want to work together again, whether it's on a small game or not.

"This dynamic has incredible value in the industry and it's what we want to do: we want to create core teams that want to make great games," he added. "So yes, we will encourage other initiatives like Child of Light and there's a chance that we will have many more games like that in the future."

Child of Light, built within the UbiArt framework and helmed by Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Far Cry 3 creative director Patrick Plourde, launched in April. The game is currently available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Plourde told CVG that he has since left the Child of Light team and is working on another studio project.
