Located in Chengdu, Sichuan and appropriately named Ubisoft Chengdu, the new studio will start out working on internal outsourcing projects and eventually focus on the development of online titles for the broad range of PC, consoles, and handhelds.
Based in Tianfu Software Park, Ubisoft Chengdu has only ten team members at the moment, but plans to employ more than 200 across the coming year. With the company describing Chengdu as "a perfect environment," it expects "long-term growth opportunities based on a talented and highly educated local population."
"The success of our studio in Shanghai, which has been further confirmed with the launch of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the PlayStation 3 system, has encouraged us to extend our growth in China," explained Ubisoft executive director Christine Burgess-Quemard.
Chinese Chengdu based game company Ling Wan Ching Soft presents new game, "Mao Zedongs:Red Star". In this game you can play as a special weapons agent of the PLA and fulfill secretive black ops missions within the the capitalist countries of the west. Release is expected only on the chinese market and will appear as an online title for the broad range of PC, consoles and handhelds.
