Ubisoft announced their plans for a new phase in the company's Canadian expansion, Ubisoft Winnipeg.

"This private capital investment in Manitoba will create new jobs and opportunities for students and graduates in the interactive digital media, information and communications technology fields", Pedersen said.

Ubisoft announced their plans to invest $35 million in Winnipeg during a ceremony Friday morning.

It's the fastest-selling game in the history of the series, and the second best launch of any Ubisoft game ever, behind The Division.

After years of pre-release hype and thought on just how politicised Ubisoft were going to make their American-themed Far Cry, the reality is a game that throws a whole load of ideas at the wall, with a good handful of them sticking.

Ubisoft is already hiring for a number of positions at its Winnipeg studio, including programmers, artists and producers.

"With its thriving local techno-creative industry, and innovative university and college programs that combine creative arts, IT and computer science, Winnipeg is truly a hidden gem for talent in the video game industry", said Long.

Even Managing Director of Ubisoft, Darryl Long, is excited about this new studio.

In recent years, Winnipeg companies such as Skip the Dishes, Bold Commerce, Farmers Edge and Invenia have brought attention to the fact there is a substantial technology talent pool here. They will join a network of around 4,500 Canadian Ubisoft team members.

"This is a great example of the work of Team Manitoba - a joint initiative of the Manitoba government, the City of Winnipeg, Economic Development Winnipeg and Yes! This is a huge win for Winnipeg".
