Ubisoft, the French video game powerhouse, has been making waves in the gaming industry with its flagship franchise Assassin’s Creed. The series has been a fan favorite since its inception in 2007, and has since spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs. Now, rumors have been circulating that Ubisoft is planning on taking their commitment to the series to the next level by investing in four new Assassin’s Creed projects in Spain.
The news first broke when Spanish newspaper El Pais reported that Ubisoft had registered four new trademarks in the country. The trademarks are “Assassin’s Creed Origins”, “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey”, “Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok” and “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla”. While the names of these projects remain unknown, it’s clear that Ubisoft is looking to expand their presence in Spain.
This news comes as no surprise, as Spain has been a major market for Ubisoft since the release of Assassin’s Creed II in 2009. The series has since become a major success in the country, with the most recent installment, Assassin’s Creed Origins, selling over one million copies in Spain alone.
So why is Ubisoft investing so heavily in Spain? It’s likely that the country’s large population of gamers is a major factor. Spain is home to over 25 million gamers, and the country’s video game market is estimated to be worth over €1.6 billion. This makes it an attractive market for game developers, and Ubisoft is no exception.
In addition to the size of the market, Spain also has a long history of game development. The country is home to numerous game studios, including Ubisoft’s own Barcelona studio. This makes it an ideal location for Ubisoft to develop new projects, as the studio has access to a wealth of talent and resources.
It’s also possible that Ubisoft is looking to capitalize on the success of the Assassin’s Creed franchise in Spain. The series has been a major hit in the country, and Ubisoft is likely looking to capitalize on this success by investing in more projects.
Whatever the reason, it’s clear that Ubisoft is looking to go “all-in” on the Assassin’s Creed franchise in Spain. The four new projects that have been registered are sure to make waves in the gaming industry, and it will be interesting to see what Ubisoft has in store for fans of the series.
It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time that Ubisoft has invested heavily in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The company has already released several spin-offs and sequels, and these new projects are sure to add even more life to the series.
For now, all we can do is speculate about what Ubisoft has in store for Assassin’s Creed fans in Spain. Whatever the case may be, it’s clear that the company is heavily investing in the franchise, and it’s sure to be an exciting ride for gamers in the country.
