Ubisoft expands with a new Chinese studio

UbisoftBig time game developer/publisher Ubisoft has announced plans to expand with a second studio in China. The location they have chosen is Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province in southwest China.

The Chengdu studio will open with 10 employees, and a goal to expand to 200 by the year’s end. Richard Tsao, Ubisoft’s senior producer at their Shanghai studio, will become the managing director in Chengdu.

Although Ubisoft already has a presence in China, they would like to capitalize on the success that another studio would afford them. Said Christine Burgess-Quémard, the executive directo of Ubistoft Worldwide Studios:

"The success of our studio in Shanghai has encouraged us to extend our growth in China. We are convinced that Chengdu offers the perfect environment for our expansion, offering a great number of highly educated and talented people."

Chengdu is "one of the most important economic centers and transportation and communication hubs in China," according to Wikipedia, and is said to have around 35,000 graduates in software-related fields each year.
