Assassin’s Creed IV being built by 1,000 people?

By:  Eddie Makuch


Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is being built by eight different Ubisoft studios and according to a new claim, may have a developer headcount of nearly 1,000.

Electronic Arts executive producer Giordano Contestabile recently tweeted, “Assassin’s Creed IV is made by 7 studios and (I hear) nearly 1,000 people. Is this new new AAA?”

Asked to comment on this figure, a Ubisoft representative told GameSpot, “Ubisoft does not traditionally comment on developer headcount.”

Ubisoft employs more than 7,450 people across the world, including 6,250 dedicated to game production. If Contestabile’s claim is accurate, 16 percent of all Ubisoft production talent is working on Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.

The eight studios working on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag are the company’s outfits in Montreal, Singapore, Sofia, Annecy, Kiev, Quebec, Bucharest, and Montpellier.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag launches October 29. It is in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Wii U, and “other” next-generation platforms
