Ubisoft has announced plans to add 100 new jobs to their Quebec City studio. These new positions will be created over the next three years, and is the result of an investment plan totaling $24 million, partially funded by the Quebec government.
The studio opened in 2005, and has mainly been responsible for handling spin-offs and ports for Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed and Rainbow Six. Most recently, they have been responsible for bringing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to the WiiU, and have been dipping their toe more into the AAA market.
This may mean that Ubisoft mean to expand their Quebec studio to create their own titles, and not just ports and barely related side-stories. Given their experience with the WiiU, this may mean a possible Ubisoft-made Nintendo exclusive.
