Ubisoft announced this week that it plans to add around 100 jobs at its Quebec City studio over the course of the next three years as part of a $25 million investment initiative. Around $460,000 of that is from the Quebec government, which the company says will allow it to "strengthen its infrastructure" and "take the lead" on development of AAA next-generation games.
The Quebec City studio already employs around 360 people. Launched in 2005 the studio has helped create such games as the Might & Magic, Prince of Persia, and Assassin's Creed franchises. Most recently, the company helped out with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and the Freedom Cry expansion.
"We are proud to accompany Ubisoft in its growth in Quebec. Interactive entertainment is an important vector for the economy in the Quebec City region, and helps to promote Quebec's savoir-faire on an international level," Quebec Premier Pauline Marois said in a statement.
