Ubisoft is creating two new game studios, creating 1,000 new jobs

These 1,000 jobs will be created over the next 10 years.



Read more on Ubisoft's expansion plans.

FFS... 2 Studios, 1000 jobs, 10 years... only 1 of these numerical statements has any FACT attached to them because it's here and now (supposedly), the other 2 are PR dept bollocks base on fek all but wishful thinking while frolicking in dreamland and set sooooo far into the future they are meaningless.

Sorry for the rant but I just wish these kind of company/product announcements could be a bit more relevant, sane and timely.

After a certain point throwing more people at a problem would just slow a project down. I think that game is coming out soon, provided there are no more delays.

Jobs are brill, saying that they are in the process of setting up 2 studios fab, thats happening NOW, great. Spewing the crap that they will create 1000 in 10 years time is bollocks. NOBODY can say what will happen in 10 years time NOBODY. PR ing bollocks that bit I bet that's so they can go cap in hand for some Gov subs.
