Ubisoft Determined to Make Special Effects for Hollywood

May 19, 2009 Written by Adam Wolfe


[shal]Ubisoft[/shal] CEO Yves Guillemot again expressed the company’s desire to do special effects in Hollywood. He first expressed these feeling all the way back in June of last year, and with special effects making up a huge part of Hollywood budgets, Mr Guillemot believes Ubisoft could have a lot to offer the studios.

“We want to create the capacity to develop special effects for movies. Those worlds have to merge more and more. We don’t want to make movies, but the expertise we have is key to creating special effects, graphics and animation.”

“There are all the synergies of content creation, and the advantage of launching a game and movie at the same time, so that all your marketing works together.”
