Ubisoft just announced the opening of a new studio in India.
This studio will be in Mumbai and is the second studio for Ubisoft in India after Ubisoft Pune. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of Ubisoft’s presence in India. Ubisoft Mumbai will focus on AAA game development and live operations through the co-development of AAA games from Ubisoft’s big franchises. Ubisoft Mumbai will also be a part of Ubisoft’s cross studio collaboration approach working with others around the globe. Ubisoft Pune has worked on various recent Ubisoft games like Just Dance 2018 and South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
Christine Burgess-Quémard, Executive Director of Ubisoft’s worldwide studios, commented:
“This year marks the tenth anniversary of Ubisoft’s presence in India. Our commitment to India is now strengthened by the new expansions in Mumbai. Mumbai being one of the biggest cities in the world, the opening of a new studio here will allow us to reach out to both national and international talents. By opening up to this wide high-potential talent pool, I’m confident Mumbai studio will help us attract more creative profiles and expand the diversity of our internal creative force. I am proud to see how our production presence is growing, and strongly believe that it is by investing and expanding our knowledge and expertise internally that we will be able to keep delivering the high quality entertainment experiences of the future.”
Ubisoft Mumbai reports to Jean-Philippe Pieuchot, Managing Director at Ubisoft Pune. He also commented on the announcement:
“I’m very excited to see our presence growing in the country. Opening a studio in one of the world’s biggest and most dynamic cities will open the doors to a new pool of talents. Our ambition is to contribute towards the development of the Indian video game ecosystem by partnering closely with top schools and institutions.”
