Ubisoft arrives in Stockholm
- A new studio open in Sweden
Ubisoft have decided to open a studio in Sweden. As a swede that makes me happy. We are known to have some great studios here in the past and we welcome more companies within the gaming community to come here.
We have had schools teaching kids how to create games for a long time now but it is a known fact that it is not an easy thing to get a job in the industry nowadays. If I understood it correctly, they aim for 300 new employees in Sweden in the next couple of years.
This raise a few questions as well. Will Ubisoft come with a new IP in the shooter genre? DICE are known for the Battlefield games and Patrick Bach would feel very confident in that genre.
It is also great to see a company open up new studios. I remember writing about companies shutting down studios due to financial problems. Crytek is a famous name which I believe had to shut down a few studios in 2016. Let's hope we get to see a brand new IP coming from this Swedish Ubisoft studio!
