Ubisoft Quebec City Studio Will Lead Development On A Future Assassin’s Creed Title

Ubisoft Montreal will be moving out of the lead development role for at least one future Assassin’s Creed title. Ubisoft has announced that its Quebec City studio will be sitting first chair for an upcoming series entry. Ubisoft Montreal is leading work on Assassin's Creed Unity.

In January, Ubisoft announced a $ 28 million CDN  ($ 25.2 million USD) investment in its Quebec City operation. Today, the publisher disclosed that $ 4 million of that will be used to outfit new workspaces nearby the current location. This move will guarantee that the studio will be in its current neighborhood for at least another 14 years.

The move will be finished in spring 2016. Additionally, Ubisoft is halfway to fulfilling its goal of 100 new hires for the studio. The staff-up was announced in January and scheduled to take place over three years.


Our Take
It’s important to note that Quebec City will be leading one of the next titles, but not necessarily taking the reins for the entire franchise. There have been rumors about a direct Black Flag sequel (codenamed “Comet”), and if accurate, it wouldn’t be the first time Ubisoft has released multiple series titles in the same year. – The Feed
