Ubisoft Quebec is the lead studio on "a future Assassin's Creed," Ubisoft announced in a blog post. Ubisoft Montreal traditionally heads up development of Assassin's Creed games, in partnership with other Ubisoft studios, including Quebec.

Ubisoft Quebec Managing Director Nicolas Rioux breaks down his studio's history with Assassin's Creed: "We were involved in Brotherhood. We were involved in Revelations. We were involved in Assassin's Creed 3. With AC 3 we were working on the biggest DLC for the franchise – The Tyranny of King Washington. After that we were also involved with Freedom Cry. We have the confidence of the brand team and also from Ubisoft to take leadership of an upcoming Assassin's Creed title. The team is ready for the next big step."



Ubisoft is expanding its Quebec location, using $4 million of a $28 million investment to create a new workspace, with three floors dedicated to AAA development. The city of Quebec is contributing $500,000 to the studio. Ubisoft Quebec has 350 people, with a goal of 425 before the end of 2017. The new Assassin's Creed is in production there right now.

A Ubisoft spokesperson tells Games Industry International that Montreal is still the lead studio on other Assassin's Creed games. "Montreal will continue to be a lead studio for other AC titles. And Montreal and Quebec will continue to collaborate with each other and with other Ubisoft studios – that's been key for making sure each Assassin's Creed title offers something new and creative for players."
