Ubisoft is expanding once again.
The megapublisher has announced plans to open a new studio in Berlin, which will join the well-established Ubisoft Blue Byte in the German capital. Ubisoft Blue Byte is best known as the creator of the Anno series of strategy games, and they will work alongside the newly-created Ubisoft Berlin on an “unannounced AAA project.”
Ubisoft didn’t reveal any more information about this “unannounced AAA project,” but they did mention a few more details about the plan for Ubisoft Berlin on the UbiBlog:
Germany is home to Blue Byte, one of the most established names in German gaming and an industry leader in PC strategy games. The team in Berlin will work closely with the BlueByte teams in both Düsseldorf and Mainz on an unannounced AAA project, and will help Ubisoft establish a presence in the German capital. The studio is looking for newcomers and industry veterans alike, as they plan to grow to around 50 people within their first 12 months.

Ubisoft also announced that they’re opening a satellite studio in Bordeaux, France. Ubisoft Bordeaux will collaborate with other Ubisoft studios on franchises like Just Dance, Steep, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
