Aimed to promote game development in the country
Ubisoft continues its expansion by opening a studio in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Located at De La Salle University’s campus in Sta. Rosa, the studio aims to function both as operations for Ubisoft Philippines and as a game development center for future AAA titles.
Inside the studio, there’s a dedicated pantry, break-out spaces/lounge areas per floor, a ping-pong table, a giant slide for going between floors, and a full roof deck for barbeques and events. “Our staff pushes the quality bar to international standards, and we are more than happy to provide them with an environment that is conducive to creativity, collaboration and self-expression,” Ubisoft Philippines Studio Manager Chip Go said.
Since starting its operations in the Philippines in 2016, Ubisoft Philippines has co-developed five AAA titles that include Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, The Crew 2, For Honor, and Skull & Bones.
Together with a partnership with DLSU, Ubisoft is working towards nurturing Filipino game developers, wherein game development courses are now being offered in DLSU. Aside from DLSU, Ubisoft also partnered with NGO Passerelles Numeriques in providing IT training to underprivileged kids in Cebu. The partnership has sponsored 10 students as of this writing.
As it continues its expansion in the country, Ubisoft Philippines is on a hunt for local talent and commits itself to train them to be globally competitive. “We are always looking for fresh talent who can contribute to our team’s continued success and who can be a part of the AAA games we are developing,” Ubisoft Philippines Talent Acquisition Manager Suzy Belizario said.
