Continuing their Carcassonne-like development spread across Asia, Ubisoft has just announced the opening of a new dev studio in Singapore. The new studio is an internal one (ie they haven't taken over an existing one), so we can assume it'll be called Ubisoft Singapore for the time being.

From the Press Release:
The decision to establish the studio in Singapore was largely influenced by the countryís excellent technological infrastructure, thriving local game development industry and quality of its universities and training institutions. The Singapore governmentís demonstrated willingness to work closely with industry actors and its strong support were also key factors.

The studio will open its doors early this summer in the new Singapore Technopark still under construction. A core team of Ubisoft veterans will train the initial team, with a goal of becoming 300-people strong in the years to come. This studio builds on the groupís recent reinforced presence in Asia, including the opening of a development and testing studio in Chengdu, China announced last September.
300 strong is a big goal, but given Ubi already have one of the biggest studios in the world (Montreal has over 900 employees) you can't help but think this goal is within their reach.
