List of Subsidiaries & Acquisitions of Ubisoft

Ubisoft, headquartered in Montreuil-sous-Bois, France, is a well-known video game developer and publisher. In 1986, a group of five brothers established the company. Yves Guillemot, one of the five brothers, is the corporation's chairman and CEO. There are 26 studios in 18 countries that make up the organisation.

Ubisoft also launched its own production business, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, in 2011. The primary goal is to make movies based on their games. Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft Montpellier, Ubisoft Paris, and Ubisoft Toronto are among the company's many in-house studios. Massive Entertainment, Red Storm Entertainment, Reflections Interactives, and FreeStyleGames are among the studios that the business has acquired. The various studios of the organisation collaborate and work on projects together.

Ubisoft has a large number of subsidiaries, which has helped the company grow into a video gaming behemoth. To begin with, what is a subsidiary? Any independent company that is more than 50% owned by another company is referred to as a subsidiary. A wholly-owned subsidiary is one in which all of the company's shares are owned 100%. Marvel Entertainment, for example, is wholly owned by Walt Disney Entertainment.
