Assassin’s Creed Shadows, led and developed by Ubisoft Quebec, has had an impressive 15 other studios developing it over the years.

As spotted at the bottom of the official Assassin’s Creed Shadows website, it displays all of the developers who worked on the game. Ubisoft Quebec is the main developer, but support studios include:

  • Ubisoft Belgrade
  • Ubisoft Bordeaux
  • Ubisoft Bucharest
  • Ubisoft Chengdu
  • Ubisoft Kyiv
  • Ubisoft Manila
  • Ubisoft Montpellier
  • Ubisoft Montreal
  • Ubisoft Odesa
  • Ubisoft Osaka
  • Ubisoft Pune
  • Ubisoft Shanghai
  • Ubisoft Singapore
  • Ubisoft Sofia
  • Ubisoft Tokyo

While it’s unclear on why Assassin’s Creed Shadows needed so many different support studios, it’s likely because of the “Anvil Pipeline” engine, which will unify the Assassin’s Creed series as a whole. So perhaps some studios working on Hexe, or one of the many other Assassin’s Creed titles in development, offered a helping hand in Shadows.

Although the news might not be interesting to some, the number of 16 total studios is one of the largest numbers for a Ubisoft title I’ve personally seen. For context, Skull and Bones, another Ubisoft title, had 11 different studios working on its development, which lasted nearly a decade.

  1. Why can’t they do this with Splinter Cell or a Prince Of Persia remake? Or the long troubled Beyond Good And Evil 2? This is why Ubisoft is a mess. Weren’t they supposed to find a buyer for the company 2 years ago? Maybe if this tanks too they sell for bare minimum.

  2. AC was created because they felt it would be better as it’s own thing instead of a Prince Of Persia game the same with Watch Dogs being its own thing from a Driver game why can’t they go back to that make new IP? A Viking game would be better than folding it into AC, a samurai game or ninja game instead of this, they’re in France why not focus on that stuff the organized crime and savate in a street level martial arts organized crime game or a cyberpunk french influenced game like a Code Lyoko or Oban or Skyland.

  3. I like the name assassin’s Creed Shadow awesome fix assassin’s creed unity a little bit glitch

  4. Even if this game was supported by John Wick himself I wouldn’t pre order it.
    Look what 11 studios did to Skull and Bones. I can’t possibly imagine what 15 studios will do the AC Shadows…. 🤷

  5. Ubisoft should go back to making Naruto type games go get the licenses to some French stuff like Oban Star Racers, Mutafukaz, Radiant, Dream Land, Wakfu, Lastman, and make some games out of those in the cel shaded style some JRPG like, others GTA like, and some Cyber Connect 2 like. This would be better than the current overly expensive AAA garbage they make.
