Looks like another studio will be helping out with the development of the upcoming game, Tom Clancy: Division…
According to the Ubiblog:
“We are very happy that Ubisoft Annecy in part of The Division’s family,” says David Polfeldt, Managing Director at Massive Entertainment. “They are highly experienced and talented developers, adding much value to the project. Being able to work with other studios offers fantastic creative opportunities during development and, in the end, strongly benefits the overall quality of the game.”
These are the same people who mades game like Rayman 2 on the Nintendo 64 and continued to assist with the development of Rayman until 2004 when they joined the Clancy Universe for Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. They expertise however revolves around online multiplayer games.
Examples would be Pandora Tomorrow, Chaos Theory and Double Agent, but many people may be more familiar with their work on Assassin’s Creed – specifically its multiplayer – which they began working on in 2009 with Assassin’s Creed II.
Are you excited or nervous now? Let me know.
