The development team behind Assassin's Creed Revelations is one of the biggest in Ubisoft's history.
According to US retailer mag Game Informer, in addition to nearly 200 employees at Ubisoft Montreal, the publisher has enlisted support from Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Massive in Sweden, Ubisoft Singapore, Ubisoft Quebec City and Ubisoft Bucharest.
"Assassin's Creed has always been a Montreal production, and Montreal remains the lead studio," Creative director Alexandre Amancio explained.
"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."
The last Assassin's Creed, Brotherhood, was developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Annecy, Singapore, Bucharest and Québec City. Considering how good that turned out, we're very optimistic.
