Ubisoft has created a new studio which they are simply calling Ubisoft Stockholm which will be headed by ex-DICE GM, Patrick Bach.
The new studio will work with Massive Entertainment, the Swedish based developer behind The Division.
In a blog post, Bach confirms that they will be working on a new game based on James Cameron’s Avatar which is set to release in 2020.
The focus is to create great games of course, including working with Massive on the recently announced Avatar game. To make great games you need a great team, a clear vision, great working conditions and a company backing you and supporting those pillars. I think we’ve got all those ingredients combined to make this studio a success, and offer something new on the dev scene in Stockholm.
Ubisoft Stockholm is recruiting and looking to have a studio of 100 developers within two years.
