Ubisoft Toronto is Working on Five Games Simultaneously
Going through the archives of SXSW that took place a couple of months back, we see Ubisoft Toronto studio manager Jade Raymond revealing that they are currently working on five titles simultaneously.
At the time Raymond mentioned that all five titles are unannounced. However, later in the week we saw Far Cry 4 being unveiled and then at E3 last month we were treated to the new Assassin’s Creed: Unity. That leaves three unannounced titles of which we can only take plausible guesses.
Ubisoft is mostly likely working on a new Splinter Cell title, as well as a new installment of Watch Dogs. The Splinter Cell is the studio’s staple diet in a manner of speaking, and hence they cannot ignore using the power of the new-age consoles to bring up a healthier looking Fisher. Watch Dogs on the other hand can very well have its own franchise, much like GTA.
However, I reckon the studio is still busy with its support for the game and it’s highly unlikely that they are moving on to Watch Dogs 2. A new Assassin’s Creed sounds better in theory.
Ubisoft Toronto has grown since we last heard. Raymond revealed that currently they are housing 350 developers, all of whom are the best in the industry. With that work force, it’s plausible to believe that the studio can very well work on and deliver five titles at the same time.
