Ubisoft Shuts Down Their Vancouver Development Studio

Xbox 360

Ubisoft have confirmed today that they have closed their Vancouver development studio, previously known for developing titles, Pure Futbol for Xbox 360. Does anyone actually remember it? – As well as Motionsports Adrenaline for the Kinect.

First formed as Action Pants in 2006, Ubisoft acquired the development studio in 2009 – Ubisoft quote:

“Ubisoft confirms that we have made the difficult decision to close its studio in Vancouver,” a Ubisoft spokesperson told Game Informer. “Unfortunately, we haven’t found the right formula for success for the talented team there. We thank our Vancouver team for their hard work and the projects that they have delivered.

Ubisoft giving a little bit of hope to the Vancouver staff by allowing them to have the opportunity to consider positions in other Ubisoft owned studios.
