The lights are on
Ubisoft Montreal gets all the praise, but it's not the only Canadian studio owned by the French publisher. Ubisoft Quebec City might start turning heads now that it has Assassin's Creed III senior producer François Pelland on board.
François Pelland has worked within the gaming industry for over 16 years, helping design the original Splinter Cell before moving to EA to work on games like Army of Two and Army of Two: The 40th Day. Pelland eventually moved back to Ubisoft to become senior producer on Assassin's Creed III.
"I'm very proud to have accepted the position of Executive Director of Development at Ubisoft Quebec," says Pelland. "For me, it's a unique opportunity to be part of this rapidly growing studio and to provide my support for the studio's ambitious projects in the years to come."
Ubisoft hasn't announced any specifics about which games Ubisoft Quebec City is currently working on, but the company just finished developing the Assassin's Creed III's The Tyranny of King Washington DLC.
Watch our own Matt Miller talk with Pelland about how he oversaw the creation of Assassin's Creed III here. Check the following page to read the full press release.
