Ubisoft Entertainment SA (formerly Ubi Soft Entertainment SA) is a French computer and video game publisher and developer headquartered in Montreuil-sous-Bois, France.[1] The company has facilities in over twenty countries, with notable studios in Montreal and Quebec City, Canada.

Ubisoft Montreal, a subsidiary of Ubisoft Entertainment, was responsible for the development and publication of the Assassin's Creed series until 2014. Development is now headed by Ubisoft Quebec.[2]

Ubisoft subsidiaries include Ubiworkshop and Gameloft.


The five brothers of the Guillemot family founded Ubisoft as a computer game publisher in 1986 in Britanny, France. Yves Guillemot, the former chairman and CEO, soon made deals with Electronic Arts, Sierra On-Line, and MicroProse to distribute their games in France. By the end of the decade, Ubisoft began expanding to other markets, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. From there, Ubisoft became a publicly traded company in 1996 and continued to expand to offices around the globe, opening locations in Shanghai and Montreal.

In December 2004, a rival game corporation Electronic Arts purchased a 19.9% stake in the firm, an action Ubisoft referred to as "hostile" on EA's part. The next year, Ubisoft acquired a part of MC2-Microïds (Microïds Canada) and integrated it into their Ubisoft Montreal branch.

On November 10, 2008, Ubisoft acquired Massive Entertainment.
