Ubisoft has launched a studio in Berlin this April and it appears that the new team will be working on Far Cry projects. The studio will team up with Ubisoft Blue Byte to create new AAA experiences.
By establishing a new production studio in Germany, Ubisoft is continuing to expand its influence in the country, thanks to the existing Ubisoft Blue Byte studios located in Düsseldorf and Mainz. Acquired by Ubisoft in 2001, Ubisoft Blue Byte has notably created and led the Anno series and participated in the production of games such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor. It is renowned for creating outstanding PC strategy games, but its portfolio has also extended to games for smartphone and tablet as well as console titles.
Ubisoft Berlin will collaborate closely with Ubisoft Blue Byte on AAA franchises, starting with the award-winning Far Cry series. Istvan Tajnay, the new Studio Manager who has worked at Blue Byte for five years, most recently as Studio Operations Director, is delighted by the upcoming projects.
“Starting out with a high quality franchise such as Far Cry is very exciting for a new studio,” says Tajnay. “Working alongside other Ubisoft studios around the world on Far Cry is a great honor and we can’t wait to roll up our sleeves!”
The new Ubisoft team will be located in the heart of Berlin, close to the shopping street Kurfürstendamm, the Berlin Zoo, and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Benedikt Grindel, Managing Director of Ubisoft Blue Byte, is said to manage all Ubisoft Studios in Germany.
The team will start by gathering : “a team of 50 passionate and versatile developers”. You can apply to join Ubisoft Berlin here.
