Today Ubisoft held a little ‘surprize’ press conference, which was devoted to the opening of a new studio in Quebec.
The company is also investing heavily in education and production in the region. Here’s a little abstract from the press release:
Ubisoft Saguenay and Regional Investments
Ubisoft is focusing on significantly increasing its regional operations with the creation of the Ubisoft Saguenay studio in early 2018. Online services and technologies are one of the videogame industry’s main growth and innovation drivers, and Ubisoft Saguenay will be dedicated continuing to develop expertise in this area within the company. The studio should grow to 125 employees within 5 years, which represents direct regional investments from Ubisoft of $135M by 2027.
Ubisoft also intends to pursue its regional expansion and open another studio in the Province of Quebec by 2027.
Renewed Confidence in Quebec
The opening of Ubisoft Saguenay is part of Ubisoft’s larger expansion blueprint for Quebec, with plans to invest an additional $780M and create 1,000 new jobs by 2027. In addition to the 125 jobs in Saguenay, Ubisoft anticipates creating 200 new jobs for Quebec City as well as 675 for Montreal and another new studio to be opened elsewhere in Quebec.
This new investment is in addition to Ubisoft’s current operations totalling $3.5B since 1997. At the end of this new growth phase, the company will employ 4,600 people and will have made direct investments in Quebec totalling $9B since 1997.
Focus on Education
In order to support its growth and that of the industry, Ubisoft plans on investing $13M, in addition to its current commitments, in education, applied university research, and the ecosystem of techno-creative start-ups. These new investments in Quebec will be deployed across additional regions to attract and train an increasing number of young people in disciplines related to videogame technology.
The greatest news to come from this press conference is that Ubisoft Saguenay ‘wishes to build a multidisciplinary and diversified team composed of professionals from various fields of expertise. They want people from production management, programming, graphic design, modelling, animation, level design and many other areas.
