Ubisoft investing $28 million more in Quebec, adding 100 new jobs


Ubisoft is expanding its operations in Quebec with an investment of $28 million CAD ($25,266,816.09 USD) over the next three years. The goal is to fill 100 new positions focusing on AAA next-generation development at Ubisoft's Quebec City studio.

The government will assist Ubisoft Quebec City's growth with $10,000 as part of the ESSOR program – the same program that also helped WB Games to set up shop within Canada's largest province. WB Games Montreal shipped its first AAA game last year, Batman: Arkham Origins.

The Quebec City studio was formed in 2005 and has worked on entries in the Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia and Might and Magic series. Back in September, Ubisoft announced it would invest $362 million in Quebec over the next seven years, in the hopes of creating 500 new positions.
