It’s official! Ubisoft just opened a production house here in the Philippines and they are looking for homegrown talent for their company. Ubisoft is a game company that needs no introduction having developed titles such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, The Division, Watch Dogs and the fan favorite, Assassin’s Creed.

The news first broke out at last year’s ESGS wherein Ubisoft was among the exhibitors. We were fortunate to talk to Sylviane Bahr (Communications Manager of Ubisoft Singapore) at that time and we’re told that: “ Ubisoft is looking to add more creative talent into the company’s global roster and, as such, they’re tapping into the pool of talents present in the Philippines. “ (click here for the full article)

Chip Go, newly nominated studio manager of Ubisoft Philippines said: “I am very excited to have the opportunity to come back to my country of origin to kick start a brand new studio for Ubisoft. Every day Filipinos leave the country in search of opportunities elsewhere. I was one of those people eight years ago, and now I’m happy to come back and bring my own experience in AAA game development. I know that this experience, as well as Ubisoft’s 30 years of industry expertise, is going to spark great things, and is a huge opportunity for the Philippines.”

It is reported that Ubisoft Philippines will be hiring 50 people to start their local office. Positions available vary from artists, programmers, designers to project managers. Ubisoft Philippines will be located at De La Salle University campus in Santa Rosa, Laguna. Interested candidates may contact Ubisoft Philippines at philippines@ubisoft.com.
