Ubisoft developing 'next-generation' theme park based on games

Publisher Ubisoft is developing a theme park based on its game franchises and characters that's slated to open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2020. The 10,000-square meter park will feature rides, shows and other attractions based on Assassin's Creed, Just Dance and Rabbids, according to an announcement from the company.

"Ubisoft's intention for this park is to immerse people in reactive worlds where they can interact with each other and become the heroes of their own life-sized game," said Jean de Rivières, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, in a statement.

Ubisoft is co-developing the indoor park with Malaysian theme park company RSG. Ubisoft has flirted with theme park development before; an attraction based on the game maker's Rabbids (pictured above) opened in France's Futuroscope park in 2014.

Rivières said in a statement that Ubisoft will "produce all digital media for the rides, and help design guests' journey into the park to ensure the visitors' experience is at its best."
