The gaming industry is still growing in Bordeaux with the arrival of Ubisoft, world leader in creation and publishing studios.
25 years after the first opening of its studio in Paris, Ubisoft has chosen Bordeaux and Berlin to create 2 new European studios.
Supported by the Invest in Bordeaux agency throughout its location choice (responses to the specifications, real estate search, networking etc.), in collaboration with the managers of Bordeaux Metropole and the Nouvelle Aquitaine Regional Council, Ubisoft Bordeaux has declared the creation of 50 jobs in its first phase, mainly creative talents.
Bordeaux, a “natural” choice in light of its attractiveness
Ubisoft Bordeaux strengthens the presence of the company in France, especially on the Atlantic coast.
2 hours from Paris via the high-speed railway line opening in July and an exceptional UNESCO world heritage site, Bordeaux is a crossroads that is globally renowned for its culture and gastronomy.
Bordeaux Metropole also boasts a strong digital heritage with an expanding gaming industry including a talent pool with strong potential thanks to its schools and training courses (Enseirb-Matmeca, Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Cognitique, Kedge Business School etc.).
Today, Bordeaux has at least 50 creative studios representing more than 500 jobs and a Bordeaux Games association which encourages these start-ups in partnership with talents from the training centres in Angoulême.
Xavier Poix, Director of Ubisoft’s French studios: “gaming is above all the alliance of art, creativity and digital innovation, and France is not short of these assets within these fields. This rich French culture enables us to dare creative approaches that give a sense of detail that is envied across the globe”
Ubisoft Bordeaux is recruiting for all kinds of professions!
With around 10,000 employees around the world (2,000 in France) and turnover of €1.394 billion, Ubisoft is in full growth and hopes to pursue its recruitment policy through its establishment in Bordeaux.
The new team will take part in the development of some of the biggest brands ever created in France, such as “Raving Rabbids”, “Just Dance”, “Steep”, or “Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Wildlands”.
For its first year, the studio is scheduled to welcome 50 talented people, including a team of 10 experts coming from other French studios, who will play a major role in their integration.
