Imagine ruling the world with your crazy video game ideas. Imagine some of them become classics, definitive trendsetters. Games have taken us all by storm. Names like Assassin’s Creed, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six have created new revolution. Ubisoft is the name behind this phenomenal success.The French company now claims itself third place in the elite list of game publishers of the world. The beginning was unbelievably modest, starting out in an unknown small village of Brittany. Five brothers from Guillemot family took off with a simple goal to imagine, create and sell.
The founders named their company ‘Ubisoft’ which is derived from ‘Union des Bretons Indépendants’ plus Software. The ideas were fresh and remarkable, soon landing business deals with companies like Electronic Arts, MicroProse and Sierra On-Line. The ideas took off and soon, Ubisoft entered the main league in 1993. After becoming the largest distributors of video games in France, the company opened a studio in Montreuli.
