Ubisoft Toronto has five unannounced games in development, two of which are being co-developed with other studios, managing director Jade Raymond revealed at SXSW. "There are definitely a lot of plates spinning," she said at the Austin, Texas-based event.
Previously, Ubisoft Toronto worked on Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist. According to The Star, it sounds like more AAA franchises with transmedia potential are on the cards, which comes as no surprise given that there are multiple movies based on Ubisoft properties in the works, including Assassin's Creed and even the unreleased Watch Dogs.
Still, Raymond said "Our business is making games, so we have to make sure we're making good games, first and foremost. I don't think we can think out the gate, 'How is this going to be a good movie?' I don't know anything about movies. I've never made a movie in my life."
