Developer and publisher Ubisoft has today revealed that they are expecting to add 500 new jobs to its Quebec operations through a $373 million investment over the next seven years. The publisher is expecting to house over 3,500 employees in its Quebec studios by 2020.

The Montreal studios are known for their handy work on the many Assassin's Creed titles, but are mainly associated with mobile and online development where the investment will be seen the most. The imminent arrival of the next generation of consoles, the expansion of mobile platforms, the multiplication of connected, immersive, and social environments, and the strategic importance of the relationship between developers and players are profoundly transforming the video game industry", Ubisoft Co-Founder and CEO Yves Guillemot indicated.

"Today's announcement allows us to anticipate the growth of our future needs with the main objective of strengthening proximity with our players and creating value for them."

According to the announcement, the Quebec Government will be handing over a non-refundable $9.9 million contribution and adjustments to the Tax Credit for Multimedia Titles, giving "eligibility to new trades now essential to operating this new generation of experiences."

So ubisoft gets 9.9M + tax brakes and in return they "create more jobs"? I am understanding this correctly?

I guess It's good to see a game dev doing well, even though i am not a fan of ubisoft.

I think there is a difference between giving car companies 500+ million dollars to stay open for another 3 years and giving a game developer 10 million dollars to put on another 500 staff.
