Ubisoft to open studio in Winnipeg

New location will focus on tools and tech development

Posted on

Ubisoft has announced the plans to open a Winnipeg studio later this year.

Heading up the studio will be managing director Darryl Long. Long has spent the last 15 years at Ubisoft Montreal, joining the company as a programmer specializing in AI and most recently serving as producer on the just-launched Far Cry 5.

Ubisoft Winnipeg is expected to grow to a headcount of 100 people within five years, representing an investment of $35 million in the province. It will be focused on creating tools and tech for the publisher's major franchises.

This is the latest studio in Canada for Ubisoft, joining Montreal, Quebec City, Saguenay, Toronto and Halifax.
