A UNIQUE & POWERFUL PROMOTIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR REACHING A VAST, SOUGHT-AFTER ADULT AUDIENCE

"Ubisoft's recent alliances with influent directors from the world of films, conjugated with our creation and acquisition of visual effects studios (respectively Ubisoft Digital Arts and the renowned Hybride Technologies), dovetails perfectly with the obvious interplay between video games and the 7th art. Moreover, the Ubisoft / Fantasia partnership – which begun in 2003 – precisely illustrates this common desire to promote artistic works that are immersive, creative and authentic."

— Ubisoft Montreal, Communications
