Ubisoft has announced the launch of its world-class performance capture studio in Toronto, a facility that will support the creation of high-quality content for games.
“We are extremely proud to unveil a performance capture studio in Toronto after just two years of operation in the city,” said Yannis Mallat, CEO, Ubisoft Toronto and Montreal. “This is about more than just the creation of a cutting-edge facility - it’s about Ubisoft transforming our approach to storytelling with a focus on acting talent and the delivery of the highest-quality performance output for our cinematics and animation teams. The studio also is a testament to our confidence in the talent in Ontario to deliver some of the best performance capture in the industry for games.”
Adapting techniques and technology currently used by the film industry, performance capture involves voice, facial and body performances captured from game actors all at the same time.
In addition to filming performance capture for projects at Ubisoft Toronto, including Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, the local team will contribute to other Ubisoft projects being created at the company’s 26 studios around the world.
