Ubisoft is positioning its new-ish Toronto studio as one of the big ones, giving the team one of its biggest franchises to play with in Splinter Cell Blacklist. It still has to do the Ubi grunt work of helping with other studios' annual sequels, though. Managing director Jade Raymond confirmed it'll be collaborating with Ubisoft Montreal on a future Assassin's Creed game, one after AC4: Black Flag (pictured).
"As we're wrapping up Splinter Cell, we're also looking to expanding, so we're going to be working on five different projects," Raymond told IGN.
"One of the franchises that's very near and dear to me, Assassin's Creed, is one of the ones we're going to be collaborating on in Toronto, as well as one other big franchise which we're not going to announce yet. But we're going to be doing two other big collaborations also with Montreal."
Ubi Toronto is confirmed to be helping on Rainbow 6 Patriots too, which has "a good chance" of hitting next-gen consoles. Montreal is also home to the Prince of Persia and the Far Cry series, so take your pick!
Raymond said in 2010 that the studio was planning to work on five big fancy games in its first decade. Seems it's well on-course.
