Based in Europe, Ubisoft is a giant in the videogame publishing industry, posting net turnover in 2019 of approximately C$2.405 billion.

Spokesperson for Ubisoft, Chris Early said he was keen to expand on the work the company had down with D-Box, following the success of previous collaborations.

“D-Box’s innovative approach to motion technology will have a positive impact on the gaming experience for our players,” he said. 

Meanwhile, President and CEO of D-Box Technologies Sebastien Mailhot said this was a new milestone for the company.

“The possibilities for innovation are endless and we are thrilled to collaborate with Ubisoft and contribute to the gaming experience of the future, designed for a variety of applications for casual and competitive gamers.

“The video game industry around the world is constantly growing and we are excited to capitalise on this new strategic partnership,” he said.
