Video game giant Ubisoft to open office in Winnipeg

As of now there are no specific plans for the location of the new Winnipeg offices, but Ubisoft expects to be up and running by the fall. The new Winnipeg studio joins a global network of more than 13,000 Ubisoft team members operating in over 30 countries around the world, with 4,500 of those based in Canada. Their main role is to develop new tools and technology for the company that will lead to the creation of better, more engaging game worlds for players.

Ubisoft has just published the first patch for the PC version of Far Cry 5, a new chapter in the shooter series that is already tearing the records made by previous games of the franchise.

Ubisoft plans to invest $35 million (CAD) in the province, creating 100 new jobs at the studio over the next five years. Ubisoft Winnipeg will hire Engineers, Tool Programmers, Technical Artists, and other professionals in the same field in order to fully achieve their mandate. "Winnipeg's Information and Communications Technology sector has seen tremendous growth recently and adding a world-renowned company like Ubisoft is excellent news for Winnipeg".

On Thursday, Ubisoft announced it was the second-biggest launch for a Ubisoft title, following only Tom Clancy's the Division, with US$310 million in sales in the first week.

With the economic boost, Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman says not only will Ubisoft supply jobs, it will also help bring people here for their education.

A news conference will be held in Winnipeg this morning to share more details but several sources indicated it will be a major development for the city. "This is a huge win for Winnipeg".
