Gamasutra has posted a profile of Ubisoft’s latest studio, Ubisoft Toronto, and it’s a great read for anyone interested in the company’s games or just game development in general. Ubisoft announced the formation of the studio about a year ago, but the company hasn’t divulged much information about Ubisoft Toronto since. Now they’re talking, with confirmation that the studio will be taking on development of the next Splinter Cell game.
"All of the core team has relocated with me from Montreal," said studio manager Jade Raymond. "Where you develop a game does have an impact on who it appeals to... When you think of it like that, I think the Splinter Cell franchise fits Toronto."
It’s just a passing reference, with nothing in the way of game details, timeframe, platform or anything else, but it’s something.
