Assassin’s Creed: Revelations development team over 200 staff strong

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Earlier this month, Train2Game news revealed that Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is in development at Ubisoft, with a big reveal planned for E3 next month.

It’s going to be a huge title, with GameInformer reporting that the development team behind Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is one of the biggest in Ubisoft’s history.

It’ll be produced by not only the near 200 Game Programmers, Game Designers and Game Artist & Animators at Ubisoft Montreal, but the publisher has also enlisted help from its other studios throughout the world.

Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Massive in Sweden, Ubisoft Singapore, Ubisoft Quebec City and Ubisoft Bucharest will all play a part in producing Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

“Assassin’s Creed has always been a Montreal production, and Montreal remains the lead studio,” Creative director Alexandre Amancio told Game Informer.

“But this is a huge game. The amount of time and data that goes into all of these systems to build the game is tremendous. So it’s a cooperative venture. We have different studios cooperating on different elements of the game.”

There are surely Train2Game students reading this who have desires to work for a huge publisher such as Ubisoft.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations has the aim on improving on the previous title in the series – Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood – which although an excellent game, as reported by the Train2Game blog, it was named the biggest gaming surprise of 2010.

The surprise came through the development team producing such an excellent game in a relatively short turnaround time.

Details of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations can be seen on Train2Game news.

So Train2Game, do you think the huge size of the development team shows that Ubisoft has huge ambitions of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations? Do you want to work for a high profile developer in future?
