Ubisoft Berlin
Ubisoft opens two new studios in Europe

Ubisoft published a new blog post on its official site. In it, the company shares its plans to “strengthen creative forces” in Europe. To that end, two new studios will open in Bordeaux, France, as well as Berlin, Germany, later this year. These new studios will focus on AAA-multiplatform development.

Christine Burgess-Quémard, executive director of Ubisoft, stated:

We pride ourselves on attracting and retaining the best creative talent around the world, and on establishing video games as a viable career option and economic contributor in new locales. Building on established local success in France and Germany, the new studios will plug into a global network to work collaboratively with teams around the world. They will also benefit from a rich pool of local talent that enables us to offer more opportunities to skilled graduates and industry veterans in those regions, who in turn will help our highly skilled teams in the development of some of our biggest franchises

Ubisoft Bordeaux

There are already 4 studios also  established in France: Paris, Lyon, Annecy and Montpellier. Bordeaux will join development led by other French studios. That will include such franchises as Just Dance, Steep as well as Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Ubisoft Berlin

The team in Berlin will work closely with Blue Byte on an un-announced AAA-project. It will also help the company establish its presence in Germany. Additionally, the studio is planning to grow to around 50 people over their first year.
