Ubisoft has opened up two new development studios in Germany and France.
The new studios will "assist in developing new AAA games for some of Ubisoft's biggest franchises." Ubisoft plans to have over 100 employees working across the two studios.
Julien Mayeux has been named as studio manager for Ubisoft Bordeaux.
"We pride ourselves on attracting and retaining the best creative talent around the world, and on establishing video games as a viable career option and economic contributor in new locales," said Ubisoft's worldwide studios director Christine Burgess-Quémard.
"Opening new studios in both France and Germany enables us to offer more opportunities to skilled graduates and industry veterans in those regions, who in turn will help our highly-skilled teams in development of some of our biggest franchises."
Ubisoft Bordeaux will be working closely with studios in Annecy, Lyon, Montpellier and Paris. Ubisoft Berlin will be working with the two Blue Byte studios in Dusseldorf and Mainz.
