Ubisoft opens new studio in the Philippines

It will develop ‘AAA console games’

Ubisoft has announced it will open a new studio in the Philippines.

The new studio aims to hire up to 50 staff in its opening year and work alongside other Ubisoft studios to develop “AAA console games,” including nurturing “close ties” with Ubisoft Singapore.

“Every day, Filipinos leave the country in search of opportunities elsewhere,” said studio manager Chip Go on the Ubisoft blog. “I was one of those people eight years ago, and now I’m very happy to come back and bring my own experience in AAA game development.”

“We have huge ambition for this team, who will play a part in creating some of Ubisoft’s biggest and most beloved games.

“Ubisoft Philippines will be recruiting 50 new team members this year, from artists to programmers, designers to project managers, and we are very confident of our ability to build a strong team to take up these challenges.”

The studio is expected to open in the next few months. As yet, we don’t know what its first project will be. Feel free to guess below, though. SHOW ME YOUR GIFS.
