Following the announcement last November that video game company Ubisoft open a studio in Sherbrooke, the company revealed on Thursday that its new development studio will set up shop next to the future public square in downtown Sherbrooke’s Espace Centro towers.
“We’re excited about moving into this vibrant and inspiring area,” said Nathalie Jasmin, director of the Ubisoft Sherbrooke studio in a press release issued on Thursday.
During the fall announcement Jasmin said that Ubisoft was interested in finding a place in the city where employees would be able to be a part of a community and close to cultural hubs. Speaking of the Espace Centro decision, the director said that the proximity to the “Well Sud” redevelopment project was a deciding factor in the choice.
“We look forward to working closely with the City of Sherbrooke to ensure the harmonious and responsible development of the downtown area. Following in the footsteps of Ubisoft Montréal, Québec, and Saguenay, we want to invest in the neighbourhood from day one.
