Ubisoft Entertainment SA founded | “Game on” for Ubisoft | Techday, March 28th
For today’s TECHDAY, we introduce you to Ubisoft Entertainment S.A. The company was formally founded by the five Guillemot brothers on March 28th 1986. The name Ubisoft was selected because it symbolized “ubiquitous software”. Ubisoft Entertainment SA (formerly Ubi Soft Entertainment SA) is a French video game company with headquarters in Montreuil, Canada and development studios across the world. Its video game franchises include Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, For Honor, Rabbids, Prince of Persia, Just Dance, Tom Clancy’s, Watch Dogs, and Rayman.
Starting with England, Germany and the United States, the early 1990s saw the beginning of Ubisoft’s dynamic expansion outside French borders. The company initially focused on producing and distributing smaller educational and family-oriented games, but it eventually expanded into other genres and markets. Today, Ubisoft is one of the largest video game companies in the world, with headquarters in Montreuil, France, and offices in more than 20 countries. The Canadian division, in particular, became the largest and most important part of the otherwise French company.
