After months of rumour and speculation, Ubisoft today announced the location for its new Toronto game development studio. Ubisoft Toronto will be located at 224 Wallace Avenue in the city’s West end, just north of Bloor and Lansdowne. The location was actually deduced by an intrepid fan yesterday thanks to some hints from Employee #1, but we now have official confirmation.
No word yet as to which “triple A” franchise Ubisoft will be bringing to the GTA. Though it must be noted that Jade Raymond, producer on the first two Assassin’s Creed titles, has been named President of the new studio. Given her presence all signs point to Assassin’s Creed 3. Anything is possible though, perhaps Sam Fisher, a Persian prince or another character entirely will make T.O. their new home. The studio is set to open very soon, so expect the job postings to start any day now.
